The first picture below is the introduction of the Book Of Mormon, written in Deseret Alphabet, an alphabet used in some old church records. My assignment is to transcribe this alphabet system into the International Phonetic Alphabet (such as the ones used in the English dictionary, instructing people how to pronounce words). From one unknown alphabet into another. It's like learning 2 sets of new alphabets. SO NOT FUN! I never really cared about the IPA anyways. As if people still use dictionaries to learn how to pronounce a word.
I can already foresee a mundane future in the next couple of years of my MA TESOL program.
