Ithkuil: A Philosophical Design for a Hypothetical Language




These webpages present the grammar of Ithkuil, a design for a constructed human-usable language. The language uses a matrix of grammatical concepts intended to express deeper levels of human cognition more overtly, logically, and precisely than natural languages. As of February, 2023, the language has been replaced by a successor language, New Ithkuil, an expanded and far more systematic version of the language, designed to be easier to actually learn. This website of the predecessor language has been retained for archival purposes.
