Click on the URL below to see a spreadsheet that outlines part of a language that I am working on.
1. Is syllable based. ( Syllables are the atoms of speech. ) 2. Uses the easiest to say and hear consonants and verb/diphthong sounds. 3. Arranges the verb/diphthong sounds horizontally in the order they are learned by infants. 4. Arranges the consonant sounds vertically in the order they are learned by infants. 5. The intersection of verbs and consonants points to cells that represents the concept of that sound.
( In order to learn the language, or for two people speaking entirely different languages to communicate, all one has to do is create a chart on which the concepts in their language is entered in the proper cells.)
( For example, if the "ba" cell represented food, the word for food in one's language would be entered in that cell in one's own language.)
In other words, if anyone said "ba", anyone speaking any language would know that the speaker was referring to "food" by consulting the chart for their language.
6. Stand alone verb sounds and consonant "finals" are used as modifiers and "switches".
For example, a stand alone "a" sound means "what?", the final "m' sounds indicate possession, the final "t" sound indicates a proper noun, etc.
For example p@ means "dad" and p@ with an m final = "dad's".
The chart shown is designed to interface with infants, and consonant "final" "switches" are used to point to more sophisticated, technical and specialized tables.
7. Standard ascii characters are used to reference sounds specifically.
I copied this idea from James Evans, who created a written language for Canadian Cree Indians, and in five years all of the Indians could read and write. ( It was so easy to learn and simple to use.)
