homepage imaginarium linguistic

I hope to have time to put here a few information about linguistic structures, formal language design, people (Noam Chomsky and others), natural language processing (NLP), chatter bots and more tools.

Some of my experiments
"Kotoba no koto o kangaeru no ga watashi no tanoshimi desu."
(Thinking about languages is my joy)
kotoba = words
no = (genitive)
koto = (abstract noun)
o = (accusative)
kangaeru = to think
no = (postposition marker)
ga = (nominative)
watashi = I
tanoshimi = joy
desu = be

A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling
(by Mark Twain)

      For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i" and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.

      Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants. Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.

      Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.
