Pastafarian language

Postby Wu on Wed Oct 04, 2006 9:46 am

It is now quite obvious that the Pastafarian community has spread beyond the borders of plain old English :) so I had a thought (well, just that one for the moment) - what language suits FSM-ism best? Or should things just carry on as usual?

Would it be English? Some other living language, which one? A conlang (Constructed Language)? And - if a conlang, would you rely on pre-made languages, or make one on the spot? :twisted:

FAQ:
Q: Why?
A: Well, I think it would make something interesting for the community :) As long as there is no linguistic discrimination and pointless language-for-initiated-only nonsense that creates a gap and alienation between people(s)...

So, shoot, let's see some new action :wink:

PS. Ithkuil website is http://home.inreach.com/sl2120/Ithkuil/ and Volapuk is here, http://www.southern.edu/~caviness/Volapuk/, and in some other places (there's even a Volapuk Wiki)

Pirate Talk?
Our Pasta, who "Arghh" in heaven, Swallowed be thy shame. Thy Midgit come. Thy Sauce be yum, On top some grated Parmesan. Give us this day our garlic bread. And give us our cutlasses, As we swashbuckle, splice the main-brace and cuss. And lead us into temptation, But deliver us some Pizza. For thine are Meatballs, and the beer, and the strippers, for ever and ever. RAmen.

I think that the FSM would really appriciate it if we all devoted large portions of time to creating a new Pirate-based language that is independant of all inferior languages...

I think we should name it 'Arrrrrrrggglese'

Although finding my way in Shakespeares tongue pretty well, I can't master Pirate Talk. Of course, I love to read it, but I don't think it makes debating much easier :? Clearly written POE (although REALLY old English is FARRRR more difficult!), with some Pirate Talk thrown in, will do the job best, I think. Especially for Pastafarians like me, whose original language is not English. And having to master another new language before being able to participate in a discussion... RAmen!

I think POE is the best, at least for the cause of gathering new converts... It would be much easier for those whithout english as a first language to understand, rather than some pirate-hybrid. Even those who speak english fluently might be confused by to much pirate-speak...

Sorry to ask but... what is Plain Old English?? Something like Shakespeare wrote his Hamlet (I got only Hamlet in English at home...)? Because I got a hard work with my English as you can see in my grammar in all my posts like this one and it would be even harder to write in another form of English...

Well, there are often different phonetics- for example, "f" is often replaced by "ph", or p|-|

Besides, like I said, there are many different forms of leet.

There's Ancient Leet, Proto-l33t, Modern l337, and nex-gen 1337.

Here's an example:

English- I own you, newb!
Ancient leet- I pwn y0u, n00b!!!!!!!!
Proto-l33t- I p\/\//\/ j00, n00b!!1!!1111!!
Modern l337- 3y3 p|/\||\| j00, |\|00b!!!!11!!1oneoneone!!!!1one!!!!eleven!!!
nex-gen 1337- 3`/3 9UU1\1 j00, 1\1008!!!!111!!!one!@!@!!2221!!!~!~!!!one!!!1!22qws!!1exclamation!!!!11!!!
