i was reading the article about Entish at Ardalambion
( and i came across this quote:
"A speech in Entish, if it could be understood by human ears, would
perhaps be like a very verbose and involved kind of poetry. There would
be repetitions upon repetitions upon repetitions, with slight variations.
If there was anything that we might call a sentence, it might proceed in
a sort of spiral fashion, winding in to the main point, and then winding
out again, touching all along the way on what has already been said and
what will be said."

i was quite surprised that this rather accurately describes a song that i
wrote in kontoko.

also, "each "word" was actually a very long and very detailed description
of the thing in question."  this accurately describes the language that i
created as the language from which old kontoko is descended
(conhistorically going back about 100000 years...)
