There's a lexico-semantic conlang idea lurkin' there... Hanuman Zhang, Sloth-Style Gungfu Typist ;) & lingua-mang(a)leer "the sloth is a chinese poet upsidedown" --- Jack Kerouac {1922-69} "The sum of human wisdom is not contained in any one language, and no single language is capable of expressing all forms and degrees of human comprehension." - Ezra Pound "One thing foreigners, computers, and poets have in common is that they make unexpected linguistic associations." --- Jasia Reichardt "There is no reason for the poet to be limited to words, and in fact the poet is most poetic when inventing languages. Hence the concept of the poet as 'language designer'." --- O. B. Hardison, Jr. "La poésie date d' aujour d'hui." (Poetry dates from today) "La poésie est en jeu." (Poetry is in play) --- Blaise Cendrars
