Welcome to PreBabel

                               ---  The true Universal Language

During a "2009 Linguistics Conference", a set of new linguistic laws was discussed.

Law 1: Encoding with a closed set of root words, any arbitrary vocabulary type language will be organized into a logically linked linear chain.

Law 2: When every natural language is encoded with a universal set of root words, a true Universal Language emerges.

The details are available at

Looking forward to your comments on this.

Yours truly, Tienzen Gong

After the inception of the PreBabel site on July 14, 2009, it has caught many people's interest. The criteria of constructing a universal language and its framework are available at,

An in-depth discussion on the PreBabel took place at "conlanger bulletin board." Many great questions and critiques were discussed there. The following is a brief summary of those discussions.

   1. Day one --- Summary of questions and critiques

New linguistic laws

A new linguistic paradigm

Note 1: arbitrary vocabulary means that words are patterns of temporally ordered sound types, and meaning of a word does not attach to particular activities, sound, marks on paper, or anything else with a definite spatiotemporal locus.

Note 2: logically linked linear chain acts as a chain or a system of logically linked mnemonic.

Note 3: a closed set means that the parts (radicals) of all vocabulary of a language will not contain any symbol beyond (or outside of) the given root word set.
