So I’ve been thinking – people need to be nicer to each other, everywhere, right? And something that makes people act not nice to others is fear of differences. And we are quite different from one another, right? The way we act, dress, eat, party, and of course….speak.
So what if there were a language that everyone knew, which would unite everyone? I’m not talking about making an existing language universal, since every language has its political and cultural connotations – and who wants to feel like they have had another culture’s language forced on them? But what if there were a new language, a very short language that was easy to learn? A language were nobody was more superior, where everyone was equal?
So…I created Kipi.
Kipi is a 30 word language. That’s right, just 30 words! It’s intended to be used by everyone, and is designed to be easy to learn and speak for most people (it should take no more than 1 hour to master). It uses the sounds that are used in most languages – p t m k a i u n.
I’m looking for volunteers to help me translate Kipi into other languages – so let me know if you’re interested.
Good luck, and stay nice!
Kapa! (that means goodbye in Kipi).
