Lojban (pronounced as [ˈloʒban]) is a constructed language, based around the rules of predicate logic.
==A short introduction to Lojban==
*Lojban is an experiment in language — the grammar is regular, simpler than most natural languages, but complex in its own unique way. Lojban is an experiment in thought, as well, it wishes to see how these unique language structures affect thought and cognition.
*Lojban is machine parsable, which allows potential new explorations in the fields of artificial intelligence communication and machine translation.
*Lojban is culturally neutral, as far as such things are achievable. The base vocabulary was generated using an algorithm and words from the (at the time of its creation) 6 most spoken languages on Earth, averaging them out. The Lojban community strives to maintain this neutrality.
