Yes, I am the same opinion, as @Mr. Dusk
As a hopefully soon big nation, English as an mainly understandable communication language, should be the first priority
As he stated, nearly all of the community shared projects (no mater if scientific based, biological science, or just even live easiening projects) where and will be published in english on earth (except on some parts of the asian regions - but also mostly because of the easier understandings from their own citizens)
It would make barely sense, using and sharing our discoveries in an "for earth citizen foreign language" .
I absolutely see the reason and idea behind this one, but if we would actually develop an own language, it should be our "2nd" language.
It may be luck, finding someone who has heard/read much about "Arka" or the "Kaldian Language"
It is a conlang/natural artlang, developed 1991 in Japan, combining various similarities from Japanese, German, English, French, Finnish, Norwegian and Korean
I have taken a look on it, and I liked it, and had to mentioned it, because it shows a pretty overthinked (for me at least) idea, of how a langauge can look like.
Sure it has some flaws here and there, and is hard to learn for persons with a different main languages then Japanese ~ and as a person who learned the Japanese one and still is learning the big Chinese alphabet,
has taken a look on how easy it is to actually learn the Korean one,
grown up with the Cyril aphabet and also had to learn the German one ^ ^"
I would really prefer most of the points, Arka gives, in creating an unified language.
But my post is getting a little to big, so i'll try shorten things down.
What my intentions actally was, is if we decide to create a new language from scratch (and use it to break most of our language barriers down) ~ it still should be not our main communication langauge
- But more one, to communicate privatly or for places outside of the earth (last one including also just for respect manners - so people still can understand us)
So, yes ~ I will support this idea, and vote with "YES"
But it needs to be really good overthinken and planed - what actually our goal is, with this new language :)
