New Character, (house language)
    #618379 - 04/25/02 02:14 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)




How do you like this symbol? It is the first character of my language. Also may be become the offical seal of my organization. Can you guess what it means?
If not, then I should redesign it. I like the first one the best, however all the other's are variations, even a shorthand version.

Thats excellent that you are creating a language, the symbol appears a bit complex for a letter though. What is its significance?

I presume you're being facetious. If you aren't I'll bust out a poem when I get back from my sunset walk.

It is a side-view of a picnic table, signifying a cornucopia of abundance!

the upper pic looks like an unusual combination of 2 chinese characters, the upper part means - not, don't. the lower means (i think) - literature, literary.
but the way you have written them is rare or possibly unique in chinese. i may have got the radicals (base characters) wrong but anyways, i just liked that you designed your own script but in another language it implies illiteracy. very cool.

I like your meaning, it adds to the overall depth of the character, as some people say, characters can do more justice then alphabet does to words. Which is true, in my opinion. although to say this would imply disrespect for english, which noone wants to imply. One person says it looks more like a combination of wen, plus some other word, that i don't know, dan maybe, but that could be a close link, because the word tian, is closely similar. But however this is no copy, I wrote this without thought, without a purpose, but I eventually gave it purpose, when I was looking through one of my notebooks. I decided that this character means shaman, priest, pastor, etc. The body being the center, of yourself plus the world, connected to above, plus my arms and legs are obvious around my body. This contradicts major beliefs that the body's center is in the head, I placed it in the body. The main point is that is a shaman, is connected to the above, which this person is, sharing the burden of knowledge.

I see the two figures. There is a sense of balance. Nice.

***It is a side-view of a picnic table***

thats where i've seen that before!
but if you want to create a universalor even just a new language\script, i think you need to hurry before you get old and die. im thinking it will take a LONG time to create a language, then have enough time to teach it and spread it as much as possible so the language lives on. HURRY!

Yeah, i bet hurry! It's not really that new of a concept people, since the 1600's have been writing books about this subject, the only problem is that you have to study so many languages to even have a clue of how to create a better language. So I myself won't start for awhile. any sarcasm is noted, because I know I cannot dream of taking people away from english. It's like cutting off the dick and ego of yourself, some people cannot handle this. Also if you search the web, you will see that alot of people already have inveneted new languages, which have taken no respect. These languages have no use in the real world.

So far I have looked over japanese, latin, french, and studied chinese in depth. Thinking that maybe this new language will have to be a merger of the two biggest languages, But that would be unfair right?
