A Grammar of the Ithkuil Language
Ships in 3-5 business days
Ithkuil is a constructed a priori philosophical language developed by linguist John Quijada. It is designed to be a human-usable language that allows a speaker to succinctly express far greater levels of cognitive information, exactitude, and semantic nuance than can be found in natural human languages.
Ithkuil’s complex, systematic and hierarchical grammar allows for extreme transparency and flexibility in expressing, describing, and distinguishing gestalt conceptualization; the evidential basis and cognitive intent of an utterance; objective vs. subjective descriptions of objects, events, and phenomena; holistic vs. componentially structured phenomena; mechanistic vs. synergistic interpretations of phenomena; the causal dynamics of complex states, acts, and events; and spatio-temporal phenomena.
Ithkuil has achieved notoriety among various academics in Russia and Ukraine, and fans have developed social media pages and discussion forums devoted to the language.
