John Quijada and Ithkuil, the Language He Invented
Quijada, a fifty-four-year-old former employee of the California D.M.V., spent three decades inventing Ithkuil, an artificial language which is both maximally precise and maximally concise.
Elvish, Hobbit language, perhaps most detailed of fictional languages
J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is out in theaters this weekend, and it will be a big screen celebration of the Elvish language. Tolkien spent years, some of them in World War I trenches, developing the language. It's perhaps the most elaborate fictional language ever.
Learn to speak Klingon!
In “From Elvish to Klingon,” a new collection of essays edited by Michael Adams (author of “Slang: The People’s Poetry”), the contributors explore the scope of invented languages. The collection shows clearly what makes invented languages fascinating—their logic, beauty, fun, and (often) high moral purpose. But it leaves aside a bigger question: what makes them catch on—or fail to?
Tolkien And Made Up Languages From Fiction
If humans could live as long as some of J. R. R. Tolkien’s famous fantasy characters, the author himself would have turned 120-years-old today (3rd January 2012). Instead, we’re celebrating the birthday of one of Britain’s most beloved authors by exploring one of the most remarkable aspects of his imagination: the ability to invent whole new languages that elevated his fiction from story-telling, to the creation of entire new worlds.
Do You Speak Robot?
Science fiction is full of examples of humans and machines interacting verbally, but until recently any attempts at voice recognition have been met with limited success. Even today the level of success attained by advanced tools like Siri is up for debate. One team in The Netherlands is working to meet the machines half way by adopting what could be dubbed Esperanto for robots. The language is named ROILA and it is an attempt to provide a simple spoken language that is both easy to learn, and easy for computers to interpret.
Learning ROILA (Robot Interaction Language)
The RObot Interaction Language (ROILA) is a new spoken language that is optimized for the communication between machines and humans. It is extremely easy to learn for humans and it is simple for machines to recognize. The goal of this book is to support humans learning ROILA.
Invented languages: from Na’vi and Elvish to Standard English?
When you hear the term ‘invented language’, you probably think first of the famous imaginary languages of fiction, for instance, the mind-numbing Newspeak of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, or the Russian-based criminal argot Nadsat in Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange, or Elvish and other languages in J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Or perhaps it brings to mind the feminist language Láaden
Künstlich geschaffene Sprache: Ido-Anhänger treffen sich in Trier - volksfreund.de
In Trier hat sich am Wochenende die Deutsche Ido-Gesellschaft (DIG) zu ihrer Jahreshauptversammlung getroffen. Die DIG hat kaum mehr als zwei Dutzend Mitglieder - wenn auch mit steigender Tendenz - und ist damit kleiner als die meisten Dorfvereine. Den erhofften Durchbbruch hat Ido also auch innerhalb von 100 Jahren nicht geschafft.
