Expanding the Foundations of Language Support
The Unicode Standard is the foundation for all modern software and communications around the world, including all modern operating systems, browsers, laptops, and smart phones-plus the Internet and Web (URLs, HTML, XML, CSS, JSON, etc.). However, it does not capture the many languages, nuances or language writing styles in our world. We put years of effort in handling such scenarios, from Lost-Languages to Conlangs.
Crowdsourcing Language Support
Engage allows language speakers or learners to create glyphs, describe rules (in an already known natural language, and later in the language they are working on) and ‘word-process’. By ‘rules’, we mean describing grammar, exceptions, conjugation approaches, spellings, colloquial phrase use case conditions, etc. Fundamentally this allows us to empower users to craft a series of valid vs invalid conditions and present that to any language user. The value is in capturing said rules for domains such as honorifics, gender, time, task-conditions, element counting, etc. Essence Atoms, a Semantic Periodic Chart for Computing supports our efforts to provide a meaning representation system that is semantic-based.
