About the Author

Ma la Mha has been interested in the Talossan language since becoming a citizen of the Kingdom of Talossa in 2005. From the time of his first introduction to Talossan, la Mha has used the language as often as possible and has encouraged others to do so. He has been a frequent instigator of and contributor to efforts meant to exercise and expand the use of Talossan. To help improve his own fluency, la Mha (with help from Sir Cresti Siervicül) wrote the Talossan language libretti for a couple of short comic operetta, and in 2006 became a member of the CÚG (the committee that studies the Talossan language). Using research tools he had created to aid in learning and studying Talossan, la Mha was a central character in the in-depth analysis of Talossan phonology and stress conducted in 2006 and 2007 and that led to the "2007 Arestada" published by the CÚG. After writing the 2007 Arestada, la Mha turned to the task of creating a new grammar and usage guide for the language, meant for popular consumption. The writing of "A Complete Guide to the Talossan Language" further increased la Mha's knowledge of Talossan, through the conduct of even deeper research into the language and its features than had been done during the discussions and debates that led to the 2007 Arestada. Today, la Mha is widely acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on the Talossan language. La Mha lives in Parker, Colorado with his wife and their two children.

I own this book. It's the single best work on the Talossan language on Earth. I don't know how else to say it. You need this.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Alexander G. Davis on July 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
I own the first edition of the Guizua, and it is probably the best book there has ever been. No, that might be a little silly: it is definitely the best book there has ever been, or indeed that ever could be. I understand that there are some people who have not read it - not everyone has the means, although only the basest fool would not splurge their life savings on a copy - but what I cannot understand is that I have heard it said that some people may not WANT to read it. I attribute this only to scandalous rumor, told for titillation by baser elements of the populace to destabilize the world economy. More reassuringly, I have heard from reputable sources that several species have been actively studying higher brain function and basic symbol use, in the hopes that they might be able to glean some glimmer of understanding from a few letters of the Guizua. This seems more credible, I don't mind telling you.

Some have suggested there are flaws with the work. I am here to tell you that if there is a downside to the Guizua, it is that there still exist other books that are not the Guizua. My bookshelf is filled with them: Austen, Twain, Dickens... all now worthless, useful only to burn for light by which to read the Guizua. I was already burning my Ayn Rand, but now all the other tomes are stacked up to kindle a glow to allow me to delve into the Guizua all through the wee hours. Nothing casts illumination like a Complete Shakespeare, and it has no better purpose at this point!

Another flaw is that now I despise the trees. What was once a pleasant walk through the woods is now torture: I no longer see aspen and ash, oak and pine. All I see are rigid columns of unused wood pulp, useless in their solidity.
