    Subject: Wikipedia in Planned Languages ( was Re: Wikipedia in Ido) From: "Donald J. HARLOW" <[log in to unmask]> Reply-To: International Auxiliary Languages <[log in to unmask]> Date: Mon, 10 Jan 2005 17:09:53 -0800 Content-Type: text/plain Parts/Attachments: Parts/Attachments text/plain (32 lines) For the interested, here are figures for numbers of articles as of today (last figures, somewhat more than a month and a half ago, in parentheses) Esperanto - eo.wikipedia.org - 19,608 (18,133) Ido - io. wikipedia.org - 1,906 (1,180) Interlingua - ia.wikipedia.org - 1,352 (1,386) Interlingue - ie.wikipedia.org - 150 (118) Lojban - jbo.wikipedia.org - 60 (35) Klingon - tlh.wikipedia.org - 50 (48) Volapuk - vo.wikipedia.org - 44 (44) Klingon and Volapuk remain stagnant; Interlingua has (again) actually _lost_ some articles and has been passed by Ido, whose presence in the Wikipedia world remains (relatively) small but is growing nicely. Both Interlingue and Lojban show good growth, within the limits imposed by small-number statistics. Lojban, which was formerly at the bottom of the list, has now climbed above both Volapuk and Klingon, the latter of which -- despite the comment in the article from "Wyborcza" that I just posted -- seems to be very small and very stagnant. I've removed Toki Pona from the list. The on-line news/opinion/zine "Libera Folio" ( http://www.liberafolio.org/ ) reports today that the Esperanto Wikipedia appears to be the most popular Esperanto site on-line, with some 3000 visits daily. -- Don HARLOW http://www.webcom.com/~donh/don/don.html Opinions (in English): http://www.harlows.org/don/opinions/ Esperanto (in English): http://www.harlows.org/don/esperanto/ Literaturo (Esperante): http://donh.best.vwh.net/Esperanto/Literaturo

    China, March and May made this list because china, march and may are on it and I didn't want to decide in favor of the common noun or the proper noun; all other proper nouns have been omitted (even the ten other months that met the criterium of appearing more then 6 times).

    And he did retain also following negatives:

    can't
    couldn't
    don't
    shan't
    shouldn't
    won't
    wouldn't

    Thomas Prendergast published this extremely interesting list in 1864, long before Dolch, Fry and others. Long, long before computerized language corpora. And it's strikingly accurated in many aspects, IMHO - apart from the strange appearance of the word upper, that is.

    The list descripted in his own words:

    "Annexed is a list of the commonest words of
    the language, both declinable and indeclinable.
    Four of these, on an average, will be found in
    every line of an English book, and in every col-
    loquial sentence containing a dozen words. This
    list is not to be learned by heart, nor is it intended
    to be used in any way by the beginner. Its object
    is merely to show which are the most essential
    words in all languages, in order that they may be
    introduced into the sentences which are to be
    translated and given to beginners. There are no
    nouns included in the list, because it is for the
    learner himself to select and insert those which
    he will have most occasion to use at first. It may
    be said that the list contains merely what all
    grammars exhibit; but this method prohibits the
    use of grammars and all other English books at
    the outset." [pp.162-163]

    EL BOOK

    El Book is a free primer for Spanish speakers on the bare essentials of English. It was designed for people with no certain address, little access to advanced technology, and not a lot of formal education.

    english??
    christmas??

    751 words are GSL BUT NOT GLOBISH
    according to the Globish Text Scanner
    leaving a 1533 overlap between GSL and GLOBISH
     
    Like the Globish Text Scanner seem to accept all words starting with a capital.. I'll have to check English and Christmas as part of Globish in another way ...
    @JanKusanagi Is there a way to delete a posting already made ?

    I haven't posted the exact Globish listing like it doesn't seem to exist, that's the point I'm making over and over again...

    The combined GLOBISHES list points this out with the extra fact that some words on it aren't even recognized by the Globish Text Scanner...

    I really like the GLOBISH idea as a concept, but like I am an autist, I have difficulties to deal with the non exactness of the boundaries and this would even have been the case if it was only one or two words the different lists differs (zero and yours, e.g.)

    If you mean from the web interface, yes, there's a little rectangle pointing down, at the right side of the post. If you click that, you get a "delete" option.


    With a desktop client such as Pumpa or Dianara, you could edit the post and correct any mistakes, without deleting it.

    Dekompositionsansätze in der Semantik
    Johny Varsami | 2009

    Wenn Wörter oder Begriffe einer Sprache mit semantischen Primitiva und der dazugehörigen Universalgrammatik paraphrasiert werden, so spricht man von „semantic explications“. Diese können je nach Komplexität des zu beschreiben-den Begriffes nur aus zwei Primitiva bestehen oder einen Umfang von mehreren Dutzend Sätzen erreichen. Man bedenke, dass einem nur 60 Konzepte zur Verfü-gung stehen, um alle Begriffe einer natürlichen Sprache zu beschreiben. Vor ei-nem ähnlichen Problem stehen auch die etwas über 20 Sprecher von Toki Pona (zu Deutsch: ‚gute Sprache’), einer erstmals im Jahr 2001 veröffentlichten Plan-sprache. Diese besteht aus insgesamt nur 120 Wörtern, die durch entsprechende Kombinationen, ähnlich wie bei der NSM, untereinander Bedeutungen ausdrücken können, welche im Grundwortschatz nicht enthalten sind. Dadurch kann es bei der Übersetzung und Paraphrasierung abstrakter Begriffe wie Freiheit jedoch zu langen, nicht mehr nachvollziehbaren Wortkombinationen kommen. Dies wird unter anderem dadurch begünstigt, dass sehr viele Wörter in Toki Pona extrem polysem sind und oft mehr als zehn unterschiedliche Bedeutungen tragen.

    translation:

    When words or terms of a language are paraphrased with semantic primitives and the corresponding universal grammar, one speaks of "semantic explications". Depending on the complexity of the term to be described, these can consist of only two primitives or a range of several dozen sentences. Consider that only 60 concepts are available to describe all the concepts of a natural language. A similar problem is also the somewhat over 20 speakers of Toki Pona (A good language), a first language language published in 2001. This consists of a total of only 120 words which, by means of corresponding combinations, similar to the NSM, can express meanings which are not contained in the basic vocabulary. As a result, the translation and paraphrasing of abstract concepts such as freedom can lead to long, incomprehensible word combinations. This is favored, among other things, by the fact that many words in Toki Pona are extremely polysem and often carry more than ten different meanings.

    Internetveiligheid

    Één voordeel van hoogbegaafde autisten is dat we hyperconcentratie kunnen hebben op bepaalde thema's.
    Bij mij zijn dit woordenboeken, artificiële talen zoals Esperanto, Ido en Toki Pona en internetveiligheid.

    Ik geloof niet dat je via internet veilig iets kan kopen. Zelfs Bitcoins, die via hun Bitchain-technologie
    misschien zelfs veiliger zijn dan geld op een bank, zijn me niet veilig genoeg.

    Tot nu toe heeft het internet nog maar één euro aan me verdient, en dat via een zeer specifieke methode op
    een voorloper van Netlog, de Europese tegenhanger van Facebook, dat Redbox.be noemde kon je één foto gratis
    zetten, maar voor elke volgende foto moest er iemand een sms zenden om die zichtbaar te maken.

    Op een gsm via pre-paid kaarten heb ik dit systeem dus uitgeprobeerd om een extra foto van een vrij willekeurig
    gekozen andere gebruiker zichtbaar te maken. Binnen de minuut was er inderdaad een euro van mijn belkrediet af-
    gegaan en werd de foto zichtbaar.

    Jammer genoeg is dit vrij veilige systeem niet doorgebroken. Het was tevens ook een interessant monetiserings-
    model volgens mij. Voor zowat elke foto verdiende de site dus zo'n euro, op de eerste na dan.

    Bankkaarten, kredietkaarten, enz. zijn absoluut niet veilig te maken via het internet. Jammer, maar het is zo.

    Ik gebruik ook verschillende e-mails voor verschillende specifieke doeleinden. Zodat ik kan aantonen dat een
    mail die zogezegd van mij komt, niet van mij kan zijn als het voor iets anders gebruikt wordt.

    Ik heb nu één e-mailadres dat ik heb gebruikt op een modernere wijze: om enkele boeken te bestellen met hun 
    juiste ISBN-nummer via een winkel waar ik ze fysiek ga ophalen en waar ik de mensen achter de kassa ken.

    Meteen heb ik ook regels gesteld: maximaal bedrag van een aankoop is 30 euro voor de hele bestelling.
    Dat voorkomt dat ik te weinig geld zou meehebben als ik binnen loop nog voor ik al de mail ontvangen
    heb die meldt dat een bestelling is aangekomen.

    Het is dat ik geen vertrouwen heb in de website van de winkel die enkele error-pagina's laat verschijnen en
    die niet voorziet in een optie om te betalen in de winkel. Ik betaal trouwens altijd cash, nog zo een
    beveiliging en de hele soms in één keer.

    Ik heb ook geen vertrouwen in telefonische bestellingen. Omdat je geen papieren bevestiging heb van
    wat je precies besteld hebt - je kunt ze zelfs niet kunt afdrukken.

    Ik betaal dus enkel cash, de som in één keer en ik moet een papier kunnen hebben waarop ik de bestelling
    kan nalezen. Ik moet ook nog eens de mensen kennen in de winkel zelf.

    Precieze regels voor welk e-mailadres ik voor wat precies gebruik gedurende een bepaalde periode, zodat
    ik een controle heb op vreemd gebruik of nagemaakte e-mails.

    Geen verkopen via telefoon, enkel via de klassieke post waarbij ik alle voorwaarden kan nalezen en doen
    nalezen. Zodat je tijd heb om de zaken te overwegen. Want men praat je misschien wel aan dat een andere
    formule voor een service beter is, maar dat is lang niet zeker voor elk mogelijk gebruik.

    Het gebruik dat je maakt kan veranderen, zelfs radicaal, en het is voor mij belangrijk te weten hoeveel
    dat dan zal kosten. Kilometerverzekering van een auto ? geen denken aan, voor hetzelfde geld ligt er
    een familielid in een hospitaal ergens in Frankrijk en moet je er plots alle dagen heen - je betaalt je 
    dan blauw aan die verzekering die je zoveel zou besparen. Punt.

    Telefoneren gratis na 5 uur ? klinkt leuk, maar ze is dan nog eens zo duur tijdens de kantooruren, en het
    kan nodig zijn ineens erg veel te moeten bellen. Je moet gewoon weten dat bellen duur kan zijn en daarmee
    uit. Dan bel je niet te lang om mee te beginnen. Je kunt je nog altijd laten bellen door iemand met zo'n
    abonnement ... :-)

    En ik wil op voorhand alles betalen, niet achteraf. Zelfs in een café betaal ik nog voor ik iets drink.
    Geen verrassingen, zekerheid. Dus vooraf vragen naar hoeveel iets kost als je heniet kunt terugvinden
    op een lijst.

    Ik reken zelfs uit hoeveel mijn boodschappen in een winkel me zullen kosten vooraleer ik naar de kassa
    ga. Deels omdat ik zeker zou zijn dat ik wel genoeg geld mee heb. OK, cash betalen heeft zo zijn nadelen.
    Anderzijds weet je precies wat je uitgeeft en moet je maar voorzien genoeg geld mee te nemen voor hetgeen
    je wil gaan kopen. Je koopt ook veel minder als je met een lijstje werkt.

    Heb je niet genoeg geld voor iets, dan moet je dat de volgende keer maar meebrengen. Al moet je daarvoor
    naar je ouders, tante of zus gaan om snel terug te komen...

    Veiligheid heeft een prijs. Tegelijkertijd, als het elektronisch betalen plat ligt, ben je de enige die
    nog geholpen kunt worden... dan moet al de rest maar cash geld gaan zoeken of vragen in de bank. :-)

    Er is nog een voordeel: als je altijd alles ineens betaalt, dan heb je geen rekeningen open staan.
    Lenen kost geld. Heb je het geld niet voor iets, moet je het eerst sparen. Of gaan zoeken naar hetzelfde
    in een Kringloopwinkel waar je iets kunt kopen aan de prijs die zo'n gebruiksvoorwerp werkelijk waard is.

    Ik weet het, ik ben erg radicaal, maar zekerheid is iets dat ik altijd nastreef. Enkel iets dat al helemaal
    betaald is, heb je in je bezit. Enkel hetgeen gedaan is, is echt gebeurd. Blijvend gebeurd. Ik maak ook
    bijna nooit een belofte of het moet zijn dat ik beloof mijn best voor iets te doen. Enkel een eventuele
    God kan iets beloven, ik, ik kan morgen dood zijn, of binnen een kwartier of zelfs nog voor ik de belofte
    helemaal heb uitgesproken.

    Eerst zien en dan geloven. Nog zo'n adagium. Enkel hetgeen iemand al heeft gedaan, is al gebeurd. Punt.

    Lenen doe ik enkel van mijn ouders. Voor een auto te kopen was dit echt nodig.

    Ik heb ooit eens 300 euro van een vriendin geleend en van zodra mijn ouders dit wisten, moest ik die
    zelfde dag nog dat geld aan haar gaan terugbetalen.

    Bij de bank kan ik niet in het rood gaan. Speciaal om gevraagd.

    Veiligheid, veiligheid, veiligheid; zekerheid, zekerheid, zekerheid.

    Pre-paid kaart voor gsm, met een reservekaartje op zak. Word je gsm gestolen, meer dan je krediet opbellen
    kan men niet doen.

    Een busabonnement, een KEY CARD voor de trein en wat reservegeld opzij voor een langere treinrit mocht het 
    echt nodig zijn.

    Enkelgeld om iets te kunnen drinken en naar het WC te kunnen gaan, als het echt nodig is.

    Enkele zakdoeken, ook twee pakjes papieren zakdoekjes, enkele hondenpoepzakjes met een reserverolletje,
    en tenslotte wat druivensuiker.

    Liefst ook iets tegen de regen in de vorm van een KW of een regenhoesje.

    En een mens is uitgerust om de wereld in te trekken.


    NOTA BENE: ik tank zelfs cash, en voor de zekerheid tankt ik vanaf ik zie dat ik nog maar een halve tank heb,
    zodat ik zeker niet zonder bennzine val.
