Ithkuil

Post by panyamnyenyekevu »

One of my favorite all time articles.

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2012 ... -beginners

After reading it, I ordered a hard copy of Ithkuil which is available online for free.

Certainly interesting from a rational point of view, but does this language have beauty, euphony and poetic expression?

“An idealized language whose aim is the highest possible degree of logic, efficiency, detail, and accuracy in cognitive expression via spoken human language, while minimizing the ambiguity, vagueness, illogic, redundancy, polysemy (multiple meanings) and overall arbitrariness that is seemingly ubiquitous in natural human language.”

It sounds like an amazing project. I'll read more about it ;)

Ithkuil's great, but it's so hard to learn that the goal of raising monolingual native speakers would be almost impossible due to noone being able to learn it.

Thank you. Maybe. I think the creator of the language might agree with you. I read on wikipedia that he has revised it again to make it easier. Anyway, regardless, I’m not sure I would agree that it’s impossible to implement. I’ll maybe get back to you on this some day years from now. 😉
