I watched a fascinating TV program, the other day, about illusions, the inner workings of the brain and perceptual psychology.

I've seen plenty of optical illusions before but presented here were also auditory and touch illusions too. There was even something about the development of wholy new senses.

Since I was small I've been fascinated by perception and would ponder to myself about riddles like "how do you know what colours others see?" We use language as a way of communicating an idea, thought or feeling from one person to another. But in order to do that you need to reach an agreement on what those words mean. Through education and reinforcement from the moment you are born everyone is telling you how the world is. We must start off as a relative open book but everyone we come in contact with teaches us the shared world view of our culture. This is a table, that is a chair, this is how to behave, that isn't acceptable and so on.

Whenever any of us encounter a baby we get eye contact and talk to them. First of all with simple language (cue silly baby voice) 'hello baby, hello baby!' - "you are a cute one, aren't you? Yes!" Every person an infant comes in contact with is reinforcing how the world is, taking a mass of jumbled, interconnected neurons and weaving them into a map that describes the world as we know it. It happens to us and now we do it to others, its how we keep our culture and community together.

So when I see red I have no idea whether you will see blue but call it red. Agreement was reached when you were young that the word red is used when you see a particular colour so that we can communicate and agree regardless of what you actually "see" in your mind. But then perhaps that is the crux of it. How much of what we believe, know and see is our culture that is taught to us and how much is actual reality? Well , we perceive a very narrow part of the electromagnetic spectrum and in quite a narrow way too. Blue or red light isn't actually blue or red, it is made up of photons travelling at extremely high speeds but our visual cortexes see red and blue and we have designed words for these perceptions so that we can agree on what they are. It is this agreement that is reality, it is all of us reinforcing what we agree and what we perceive, through talking and education and learning. That is what our reality actually is.

Some people think that babies actually have a much wider perception than we have and that through this constant reinforcing, that perception is gradually narrowed until they see the world as it has been described to you.

I read somewhere once, about the differences between western and eastern culture and how important language is. Western languages are very object based but Chinese, for instance, is much more about actions and events. This colours how we see the world. Westerners predominately understand the world as made up of things, whereas the Chinese see it as movements from one state to another.

I don't know how true that is, as I am a product of my western upbringing. I can't step out of my worldview to see how others see things but the concept is fascinating nonetheless.

So on this TV programme, I watched, there was this blind guy who loved riding his bike. He had been blind from birth and quite remarkably he had developed the ability to echo locate. He would use his tongue to send out a flurry of clicks and bounce them off things just like a bat or a dolphin. He had honed this skill so he could cycle around and not crash into anything. He said that his brain created a picture in his head and he could 'see' where he was going.

At a university they devised an experiment where they created a belt that would detect the direction of north and give you a little nudge in your midriff whereever it was pointing. After a few weeks of wearing the belt volunteers brains had adpated to use this information, without being aware of how it was happening, to navigate blindfold around a maze.

So it seems the brain can adapt to new types of sensory input, and it uses this information to create models of the world outside without us having to try.

A clip was shown where someone said the word "bah." After seeing him say this the moving image was replaced with the same person saying "fah" but the audio continued to be "bah" but whilst you are watching him speak it sounds like "fah", as soon as you close your eyes (and am not seeing him say "fah" anymore) then you hear "bah" again. It seems your eyes override what you hear with what you see. It is called the McGurk effect. Look it up on Youtube to see what I mean.

They asked the question "is seeing believing?" And the answer came back as "you don't believe what you see, in fact, you see what you believe."

Only 10% of what our brains receive through the eyes makes up what we see. The other 90% is made up of other parts

Case 4: Conlangs through History, right

Case 4: Conlangs through History, right

(Top left) Ancient Greece

Although not a conlanger, the character of Hermogenes in Plato's dialogue Cratylus espouses the basic concepts behind the art. Hermogenes argues that words are not inherently linked to what they refer to; that men apply "a piece of their own voice...to the thing." Cratylus counters that "everything has a right name of its own, which comes by nature." Hermogenes may even agree that words in Esperanto are just as valid in referring to an object as words in Greek.

The Deipnosophists
Athenaeus of Naucratis, in Book III of The Deipnosophists, tells the story of two figures that could very well be called ancient conlangers: Dionysius of Sicily and Alexarchus.

Dionysius of Sicily made up words like menandros “virgin” (from menei “waiting” and andra “husband”), menekrates “pillar” (from menei "it remains in one place” and kratei “it is strong"), and ballantion “javelin” (from balletai enantion “thrown against someone”). Incidentally, the normal Greek words for those three are parthenos, stulos, and akon.

Alexarchus, the brother of King Cassander of Macedon, was the founder of the city of Ouranopolis. Athenaeus recounts a story told by Heracleides of Lembos that Alexarchus “introduced a peculiar vocabulary, referring to a rooster as a “dawn-crier,” a barber as a “mortal-shaver,” a drachma as “worked silver”...and a herald as an aputes [from eputa “loud-voiced”]. "He once wrote something...to the public authorities in Casandreia...As for what this letter says, in my opinion not even the Pythian god could make sense of it.” One wonders what they would have made of a letter written in Klingon.

"Experiments" Through the Ages

664 B.C.
Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian, tells the story of King Psammetichus of Egypt in The Histories (Part 2, Book II). It seems there was a debate between the Egyptians and the Phrygians as to who was the more ancient nation. Psammetichus devised a plan to put the matter to rest by taking two newborn children of common parents and giving them to a shepherd to raise. The shepherd was instructed to take care of them in a secluded hut but to never speak to them. In time, Psammetichus surmised, the children would give up their infant babbling and begin speaking the "first" language of the world. After two years, the shepherd reported than one day he opened the door to the hut and the children ran to him saying "Bekos!" Psammetichus later heard the children for himself and inquired which people uttered the word bekos. He found it to be a Phrygian word for "bread," and thus it was agreed that the Phrygians were more ancient than the Egyptians.

13th Century
The 13th-century Holy Roman Emperor, Frederick II of Hohenstaufen, was also intrigued by the question of the "original" language. According to the contemporary Chronicle of Salimbene de Adam, Frederick II instructed foster-mothers to take care of several babies without making any noises to them. He wanted to see if they would speak Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Arabic, or their natural-born parents' language. Unfortunately, Salimbene explains, Frederick was disappointed because the infants never acquired any language and communicated only with clapping, gestures, and facial expressions, and the children died very young.

The last reported "experiment" was conducted at the behest of King James IV of Scotland (pictured here) according to Robert Lindesay of Pitscottie (The History of Scotland). The king had a mute woman and two children transported to Inchkeith, an isle in the Firth of Forth. They would be provided with "meat, drink, fire, and clothes, with all other kind of Necessaries." King James hoped that the children would, unencumbered by human speech, naturally begin talking in the world's original language. According to Pitscottie, "some say they spake good Ebrew: But as to myself, I know not, but by the Author's Report."

(Bottom left) Official Constructed Languages: Norwegian and Cherokee

Being a land of various spoken dialects of Norwegian, Norway originally had one official written language based on Danish due to a centuries-long union with Denmark. Wishing to differentiate their nation from Denmark after independence, the Norwegians looked for a new written language. Ivar Aasen, a linguist and scholar of dialects, created a written language from various spoken Norwegian dialects which he called Landsmal “language of the country.” Aasen received an allowance from a private institution in Trondheim to collect data on different dialects for his studies. He published his definitive grammar of Landsmal in 1864 and a dictionary in 1873. In 1885, the parliament gave official status to Landsmal, and in 1892 it could be used in school instruction. In 1929, the name of the language was changed to Nynorsk “New Norwegian.” The country’s
