One way I have of looking at an invention of mine is to regard it as a
So, I regard it as Language Y and then I am able for it to have a
which uses the Private Use facility of the language code system.
Language Y has whole sentences, but no individual words, and each of
those sentences is grammatically independent of all of the other
sentences. Each sentence has a glyph and an encoding for the sentence.
The idea is that Language Y can be used as a pivot language between
natural languages, simply, and using computing or manual process, with
precision of result, by having, for each natural language supported,
what I call a sentence.dat file that has a list of pairs of sentences,
one in Language Y, represented by its encoding, and one in the natural
language, expressed in Unicode plain text.
I fully appreciate that there are a vast number of possible sentences in
a language, yet I am not purporting that this invention will do
everything, just that it could potentially be useful in some specific
I am not a linguist. I am interested in languages and in communication
through the language barrier. My background is in applied physics and
mathematics and so I have looked at the issue as one of a mathematical
nature, so it is just possible that that approach, linked with
consideration by an expert linguist could produce something with useful
I accept that I may have missed something basic, but if any such issues
are pointed out to me, maybe they can be resolved.
I am hoping that one day that Language Y will become encoded into The
