Later on the test gave him a passage from The Tempest, then asked him to make up a fake language, and then to translate the Shakespeare into the made-up language. He was then asked questions about the grammar and orthography of his made-up language, and then -- honestly, what was the point? -- questions about the made-up geography and culture and society of the mad-up country where his made-up language was so fluently spoken.
