From Lojban
(Redirected from Pierre Abbat)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I've been programming computers, doing mathematics, and learning languages since childhood. My invented languages (none of which is anywhere near finished, but I can say a few sentences) include the language families Borogoni (Filofonecian, Azarian, Melonian, Gratye, �nt�bamshi, etc.) and Pihaki (Pigaic, Ubnadck, and an assortment of Seligamine dialects), both of which are vaguely similar to Indo-European, and Weniti (Wanian, Fonrati, and others unnamed) which is completely different (it's agglutinative, the head of a phrase is always at the end, and a noun can take multiple case endings). When I found Lojban, it resonated with some ideas I already had about languages.

I was born in New York, grew up in California and Ohio, and have been in North Carolina for a number of years.

I am an unabashed creationist and think that the influence of cladistics on taxonomy has gone too far. Often I go to the library and study taxonomy, trying to remember which fishes have scales and figure out which birds are clean as well as their orders and families. (Anyone got a good reference for plant taxonomy? The Internet) Although I believe that man is a special creation of God, I believe equally strongly that taxonomically he belongs next to the great apes.

Pierre Abbat has often gone by the name phma.
