List of constructed languages

List of constructed languages
This list of notable constructed languages is in alphabetical order, and divided into auxiliary, engineered, and artistic (including fictional) languages, and their respective subgenres. Auxiliary languages[edit] International auxiliary languages are languages constructed to provide communication among all human beings, or a significant portion, without necessarily replacing native languages. Controlled languages[edit] Controlled languages are natural languages that have in some way been altered to make them simpler, easier to use, or more acceptable in certain circumstances, such as when a person does not speak the original language well. The following six projects are example of controlled English: Visual languages[edit] Visual languages use symbols or movements in place of the spoken word. Engineered languages[edit] Human-usable[edit] Knowledge representation[edit] Artistic/fictional languages[edit] Languages used in fiction[edit] J. (see also Languages constructed by J. Other literature[edit]

Martin Luther King I Have a Dream Speech - American Rhetoric Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have a Dream delivered 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. SIL Linguistics Linguistics illuminates patterns and variety in the structure and use of language, providing a foundation for language development work of all kinds. Understanding Language Linguistics - the study of language in all its aspects - has been a central activity of SIL since its beginning. Besides the intrinsic value of understanding the intricate complexity of human language in general, whether spoken or signed, the study of a particular individual language serves also as a tool used in language development projects of different kinds such as: SIL workers living in a language community for any extended period of time generally learn that language, aided by the tools of linguistics. Language is intimately tied to society and culture, and the study of linguistics with respect to these constitutes another important aspect of understanding language.

Globish (Nerriere) Globish is a trademarked name for a subset of the English language formalized by Jean-Paul Nerriere.[1] It uses a subset of standard English grammar, and a list of 1500 English words. Nerriere claims it is "not a language" in and of itself,[2] but rather it is the common ground that non-native English speakers adopt in the context of international business. The author of Globish presents it as a natural language as opposed to an artificial or constructed language, claiming that it is a codification of a reduced set of English patterns as used by non-native speakers of the language. Intending to demonstrate that "Good Globish is correct English", the authors of the 2009 book Globish The World Over claimed to have written it in Globish.

Media Standards Trust » is an independent, non-profit website built and run by the Media Standards Trust to help the public distinguish between original journalism and ‘churnalism’.‘Churnalism’ is a news article that is published as journalism, but is essentially a press release without much added. In his landmark book, Flat Earth News, Nick Davies wrote how ‘churnalism’ is produced by: E-Prime Some scholars advocate using E-Prime as a device to clarify thinking and strengthen writing.[1] For example, the sentence "the film was good" could not be expressed under the rules of E-Prime, and the speaker might instead say "I liked the film" or "the film made me laugh". The E-Prime versions communicate the speaker's experience rather than judgment, making it harder for the writer or reader to confuse opinion with fact. History[edit] D.

Evolutionary linguistics Evolutionary linguistics is a cover term for the scientific study of both the origins and development of language as well as the cultural evolution of languages.[1] The main challenge in this research is the lack of empirical data: spoken language leaves practically no traces. This led to an abandonment of the field for more than a century. Since the late 1980s, the field has been revived in the wake of progress made in the related fields of psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, evolutionary anthropology, evolutionary psychology, and cognitive science. History[edit] The Stammbaumtheorie proved very productive for comparative linguistics, but did not solve the major problem of studying the origin of language: the lack of fossil records.

Portrait of an INTP As an INTP, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. INTPs live in the world of theoretical possibilities. They see everything in terms of how it could be improved, or what it could be turned into.
