Inspired by conversation in SD group I therefore blog. Blog blog.

Years ago I had a bad flu and was lying in bed in fever listening to tv-news about EU parliament with all these huge piles of papers when everything has to be in different langugaes. In my feverish mind I thought I'll make a new language for EU. Or, why not, a universal language.

Ideas I had:

It's grammar should be as straightforward as possible. No exceptions to rules after another.

All the letters in alphabet should have only one way to pronounce them. My language sounds closest to Italian, I guess.

Without even knowing the meaning of the words in a sentence you can tell which word is a noun, adjective, verb or numeral. If it is in past tense or if it is an adverb etc. You could tell this by the last letter of the word.  Nouns end with a and e, verbs with n, adjectives l and so on.

Verbs, nouns and adjectives are at least four letters long. Prepositions, pronouns, conjunctions, interrogatives etc are three letters long most, so that they can end with whatever letter they like and are not confused with nouns, verbs and adjectives.

How does it sound so far? Would it be a dull language if it is too logical?

Sometimes it is easy to unlock the language beneath the words, even if there appears to be no direct expression of emotion. And at other times we haven't a clue. Communication is dependent largely on giving and receiving messages. One function of speech is to communicate needs.

 

If you are talking trivialities it is not the triviality that is important---it is the need to speak them that matters.

Yes, I know. I still found them too complicated. I would use ASCII because it is already the most common system and probably derive lot of vocabulary from English.

 

Well, this is just practice for my other half of brain.

Previous attempts at Esperanto and Delasoni have not yielded the desired results. There is a god overview of attempts at Universal Languages at Wikipedia.
