If you're reading a novel set in Ancient Greece, do you cringe when you see Latin? If your universe never had the Norse gods, how do you name the days of the week? What if your stone-age setting predates metalwork? Is this important detail, or pedantic nitpicking? Let's talk about the opportunities and restrictions in letting your setting guide your language!

Participants: Adeline Teoh, Kathryn A, Paula Boer, Rivqa Rafael (moderator).
