Indeed, what kind of language is that ? In Joblang - our loglang - the word *invented* mandatorily encodes aspects, time, mood, weather condition and - in case of connection to *cooking* - the colour of the French cook's apron. That colour is encoded blue-white-red, except when no French cook is involved (however with a distinction as whether there is no French cook or no cook at all) which de facto encodes no apron and thus no colour except in the case some French argument is involved that is not a cook such as frog, snail or fries - or flies given the frequent lapsus linguae among Japanese Joblangers. But THAT's another story I won't tell right now (I fear for Bob stealing our genial yet painstakingly elaborated ideas).
