Re: Toki Pona's community

What do you think are the big unsolved question in toki pona? I'm not fluent in the language yet, so there could easily be outstanding grammatical issues about which I am totally unaware, but off the top of my head? This is a prioritized list of what I think Toki Pona needs: <ol> <li>Produce plenti...

S-W is an invalid hypothesis

My understanding is, based on a cognitive psychology textbook I read, that the S-W hypothesis is not supported by evidence. A bilingual child who uses one language at home and another at school will come to associate the home language with familiarity, comfort, casual communication and the language ...

Is aUI a plausible language to communicate in?

Is aUI a plausible language to communicate in? It looks strange, cumbersome and I don't see any obvious grammatical rules. Are there any texts written in it I could look at? FYI- I know English, a tiny bit of Latin and studied but completely forgot Japanese. Toki Pona I'm working on. Give me another...

It doesn't surprise me that Láadan failed to catch on.

It seems to me that Láadan was doomed for several reasons. It's premise- that existing languages are biased against women- is absurd. Languages are spoken by women as much as they are by men, and women therefore have an equal chance to invent and adapt natural languages. GIven the thousands of natur...

Re: It doesn't surprise me that Láadan failed to catch on.

It's worked well for religion though-- sanskrit, latin and arabic seem to be surviving on a prestige factor that people tend to fight about. Hebrew too. And arguably Egyptian hieroglyphics. I guess religion really IS a good way to promote your language, although it must be an easier sell if it is/w...

Nice video on aUI

Enlightening video. I find it interesting that aUI was able to assemble such few symbols into so coherent vocabularies. Has anyone really looked into it? It shocked me to hear that they imported words from Latin while still maintaining their philosophical composition. No, the vocabulary isn't provid...

How would you design an experiment to test W-S?

How would you design an experiment to determine whether the hypothesis is valid or not? I know a lot of people believe in the idea of languages controlling what you can think, but if it were true I would think it would have been tested by now.

Introducing new nimi

This one I'm for, but the unofficial words? I hope you only mean proper names for places and people. No I'm actually in favor of slowing expanding the vocabulary to enable us to talk about things that we want to talk about but don't have the words for. It is the nature of constructed languages that...
