Somewhere in my electronic piling system I've got an old version of the abbyy peoples' font creator/editor but I think I purchased it. They're a group of Russian's and their font and OCR products at least sound very good from reviews on the web. I…Continue

meaning i derived by the observer.


i could write a very intelligible text in my own mind,

that is complete garble to someone who has not had my experiences with language.

everything is asemic and not asemic,

it is all in the context.

So, Katreina, in your view, art or the nature of the art, is in the eye of the beholder - certainly a valid point and one that I agree with. 


Re cyrillic/greek alphabet, i actually learned to read it a little bit when I did cataloguing at the library, but no, i don;t read it really.


however, alphabets/languages that are foreign to one, do have meaning: the meaning - at least in part - is in the graphics of the signs.  I had a friend years ago, who was translating the Odyssey from the Greek into English; but as he didn;t read Greek, he translated it from the graphic nature of the letters.  he said the results were fairly close to the original.  (I never saw those results, so only have his word for it...)

Pained envelope mailed to Mark Sonnenfeld in the USA. Mark is an experimental poet and musician. I called this "a poem for Mark".

Thanks, Caterina!  But I have to ask: do you see these as "asemic"?   I don;t; they are all actual words in real languages....  (granted, one of them is Náhuatl, which is not widely understood outside México!)

@A&S: letters are basically a different form of number. language and mathematics have a very symbiotic relationship.
