So happy to share with you: the first scifi story I've ever sold, appearing today in Strange Horizons!
Contains:- robots- cryogenic exoplanets- linguistics- beepinghttp://strangehorizons.com/fiction/68hazardcold/
@janellecshane that was excellent! it seems so natural that droids would form their own language given their allowed subset of signals.
@lunchgirl Thank you so much! I've heard from linguists who read it who said, yeah, that could totally happen. And then started thinking about information density and phonemes
