Why Latin?

I asked the author this question and would be interested in the readers thoughts on this.

RE: Why Latin?

To me Lovebirds was about the specificity of language and the love of words and language. For me that connects with Latin, the origin of many words. There also seems to be a contrast between the Latin and the inclusion of the Crow words.

RE: Why Latin?

Latin is a beautiful language, just like this book. The bird language had many parallels to Latin. Latin is also a lost language and the bird language doesn't exist - another parallel.
