ABOUT THIS FILE
2
After falling in love with the SyFy show The Expanse I decided I wanted to learn Belter. There's no textbook available yet, so I dusted off what I learned in that one linguistics class back in college oh-so-many years ago and am attempting to figure out how the language works.
3
The file is set up with several tabs. The "words" and "sentences" tabs are examples of Belter, mostly drawn from tweets by linguist Nick Farmer, who created the language. Some are drawn from other sources. For each term or phrase, the "source" column in each tab links to a tweet that explains it.

4
Terms shown in italics, with nothing entered under "source", are ones I haven't yet found a citeable link to.
5
Translations in [square brackets] are ones I'm not 100% certain about.
6
The "general notes" tab holds a variety of information about Belter. These also have their sources indicated.
7
The "grammar" tab is more of a scratchpad where I'm trying to work things out. Things listed here may not be correct and usually do not have a source linked.
8
The "Eyepatch & Cork" tab is a space for my husband, @OaktownPirate, to contribute notes and observations in a safe sandbox where he can't screw up the formatting of the rest of the sheet. :-D Once I've reviewed and cleaned up his info, I transfer it to the appropriate other tab and delete it from the sandbox. #DirtyRottenScoundrels

PLEASE NOTE: I have no connection to SyFy, Alcon Entertainment, or anybody else involved with The Expanse. This is an effort of love by a fan.
