The main Aims & Features of Algilez

1    Aims of Algilez

 Algilez has the following aims:

  • To be unambiguous - there should be no doubt or confusion over intended meanings.

  • To be comprehensive - anything that can be said in any major world language can be said in Algilez.

  • To be regular - grammatical and vocabulary items follow simple regular patterns to ease learning.

  • To be compact - words are shorter and fewer words are required than English (which is already one of the more compact major languages).

  • To be flexible - grammatical rules permit a variety of different ways to express the same meaning (some more compact than others). This enables people of different language backgrounds to express meanings in a way that feels more intuitive and natural for them.

2    The main features of Algilez

 The main features of Algilez:

  • Algilez follows the word order convention of English, Chinese etc (i.e. Subject, Verb, Object) but with a simpler grammar and vocabulary.

  • The vocabulary is based on 'condensed' English, providing maximum familiarisation for those people who have some knowledge of English as a first or second language and short simple words to learn for those who don't.

  • The whole vocabulary is logically categorised by the meaning of the words.

  • There is a single meaning for each word.

  • Words are pronounced as they are spelt.

  • The grammar is 'logical', in that qualifiers (adjectives & adverbs) follow the word they are qualifying, enabling the listener to begin to understand the meaning of each sentence as it is spoken or read, rather than having to wait until the end.

  • International conventions for numbers and Latin based plant & animal genus names are retained (but transcribed into phonetic Algilez words).

  • The optional Algilez alphabet, using a single symbol matched to each sound, overcomes many of the difficulties associated with the well used, but far from uniform, Latin alphabet. See Algilez Alphabet for more details.
