The Conlang Flag, a symbol of language construction created by subscribers to the CONLANG mailing list which represents the Tower of Babel against a rising sun [ 1 ] A planned or constructed language —known colloquially as a conlang —is a language whose phonology , grammar , and/or vocabulary has been consciously devised by an individual or group, instead of having developed naturally . There are many possible reasons to create a constructed language: to ease human communication (see international auxiliary language and code ), to give fiction or an associated constructed world an added layer of realism, for linguistic experimentation, for artistic creation , and for language games . The expression planned language is sometimes used to mean international auxiliary languages and other languages designed for actual use in human communication.
A lingua franca (or working language , bridge language , vehicular language , unifying language ) is a language systematically used to make communication possible between people not sharing a mother tongue , in particular when it is a third language, distinct from both mother tongues. [ 1 ] Lingua francas have arisen around the globe throughout human history, sometimes for commercial reasons (so-called "trade languages") but also for diplomatic and administrative convenience, and as a means of exchanging information between scientists and other scholars of different nationalities. [ edit ] Characteristics "Lingua franca" is a functionally defined term, independent of the linguistic history or structure of the language: [ 2 ] though pidgins and creoles often function as lingua francas, many such languages are neither pidgins nor creoles.
In Norse religion , Asgard ( Old Norse : '' Ásgarðr'' ; "Enclosure of the Æsir " [ 1 ] ) is one of the Nine Worlds and home to the gods of the Æsir . It is surrounded by an incomplete wall attributed to a Hrimthurs riding the stallion Svaðilfari , according to Gylfaginning . Odin and his wife, Frigg , are the rulers of Asgard. Valhalla is one of Asgard's well known locations.
In Norse mythology , Mjölnir ( pron.: / ˈ m j ɒ l n ɪər / or / ˈ m j ɒ l n ər / MYOL -n(ee)r ; also Mjǫlnir , Mjollnir , Mjölner or Mjølner ) is the hammer of Thor , the Norse god of thunder. Distinctively shaped, Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. Though generally recognized and depicted as a hammer, Mjölnir is sometimes referred to as an axe or club. [ 1 ] In the 13th century Prose Edda , Snorri Sturluson relates that the Svartálfar Sindri , the brother of Brokkr , made Mjölnir while in a contest with Loki to see who could make the most wonderful and useful items for the Gods and Goddesses in Asgard . The Prose Edda gives a summary of Mjölnir's special qualities in that, with Mjölnir, Thor:
Clarke's Three Laws are three "laws" of prediction formulated by the British writer Arthur C. Clarke . They are: When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
Arthur C. Clarke hat im Rahmen seiner Werke die folgenden drei, als „Gesetze“ bezeichneten, axiomatischen Vorhersagen aufgestellt: „Wenn ein angesehener, aber älterer Wissenschaftler behauptet, dass etwas möglich ist, hat er mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit Recht. Wenn er behauptet, dass etwas unmöglich ist, hat er höchstwahrscheinlich Unrecht.“ „Der einzige Weg, die Grenzen des Möglichen zu finden, ist ein klein wenig über diese hinaus in das Unmögliche vorzustoßen.“ „Jede hinreichend fortschrittliche Technologie ist von Magie nicht zu unterscheiden
