◊ DID YOU MEAN LOGLAN?
Loglan
(Later "Lojban" /lozh'bahn/) An artificial
human language designed by James Cooke Brown in the late
1950s.
Most artificial human languages devised in the 19th and 20th
centuries (e.g. Esperanto) were designed to be easy to learn.
Loglan, however, is unique in that its chief design goal was
to avoid synactic ambiguity -- the kind that arises when
trying to {parse} sentences like "The blind man picked up the
hammer and saw".
Loglan is thus the only human language unambiguously parseable
by a formal grammar (assuming you count Loglan as a human
language; its grammar is not at all like that of any natural
human language).
Most later development on Loglan continued under the name
"Lojban".
The Loglan Institute, Inc. is a non-profit research
corporation.
Loglan is apparently unrelated to the programming languages
{Loglan'82} or {Loglan-88}.
