That's right. Xorban had the potential to be a state-of-the art loglang, and the first ever loglang whose design is not patently a failure. (No disrespect meant to Liva or its creator.) For reasons I lack time to explain in this message, I suspect that a viable loglang design is a mathematical impossibility (tho I am hardly the most competent person to judge that), but Xorban would represent about the closest to a viable loglang that anybody's been able to conceive of. I take it that a viable loglang design makes the language suitable for general purpose use and no less effectual than natlangs. But even if that proves impossible, an ergonomic loglang could be quite useful to the world. --And.
