Playing with 3S Language

Post by tikoo »

The member Lsd has this going on. So do I. A symbol=a sound=a sense.

Anyone can invent such a set of symbols. The choice of these is ultimately philosophical. It took me several years to settle on a set of elemental meanings that had balance. Mine has 30. Not too many, not to few. Oh, and I do play with them. I can make of them a bar trick, a fortune-telling schtick. Pretty young girls are fools for this. I can see they are mostly interested in sex. Not with me.

Make a set of symbols, perhaps just five , and with these you must make all the sense in the world. A Polynesian phoneme set may be only 17?

How about a language based on Tarot cards?

You mean Zener cards?

I have wanted to derive a language from US state abbreviations.

The 3S language gets insults. It is for crazy people they say. It is childish they say. I say it has power and is of a naturalistic mind: this is its magic.

I didn't mean it as a result. I was actually thinking of making such a sketchlang, because the Tarot card concepts are famously flexible.

Cool. Do you relate Carl Jung's ideas of cultural symbolism?

In the tarot or the runes each symbol is a story like a dream. It can be a lot of work to translate these complex thoughts into social language.

I imagine a randomly generated 3S language useful to A.I. for making a conversation bot. Every combination of symbols is always a word. I hope the randomness is touchable. It's been proposed this randomness might be cued to micro-wind speed. Something of nature.
