Languages Site

I have another WordPress based site for all the work on linguistics that I have been doing over the years.  It is at  http://Languages.SocialTechnology.ca/ for now, until I think up a nice unique domain name for it.

The site is for ideas, information, data, research and software relating to natural and artificial languages, including non-arbitrary ones.  It exists primarily to report on research from past decades and current work.    The header contains images representing natural and non-arbitrary languages.  For an example of an artificial language, see the illustration on the bottom of the header images page,  http://languages.socialtechnology.ca/header-images which includes a key in Esperanto, an artificial language constructed in a very arbitrary way.  The construction of a non-arbitrary universal or world language is a goal, and ways of approaching it will be discussed.

To start with, I have uploaded data in a text file which is a simple thesaurus for one-syllable words is at http://www.SocialTechnology.ca/onesylls.ths and a simple Python program which operates on this thesaurus to produce a sorted list of word pairs representing individual meanings is at http://www.SocialTechnology.ca/ths2prs.py.  A program to turn a list of word pairs back into a thesaurus is at http://www.SocialTechnology.ca/prs2ths.py.
