It's been over 10 years since I had a course in linquistics, but I seem
to remember that it was a combination of remembering what physical
capabilities your tongue and throat could do and what sounds those
movements produced, coupled with markings on paper, and that after
awhile I was interpreting swahili, but not speaking it, but noticing
patterns in the markings...correct? If that simplifies linquistics at
all, then how about combining sounds and markings in patterns of some
sort...a real possibility for performance art, or installation art,
combining technology with the basics of art, markings, either on paper,
walls, stone, ceramics....perhaps a juxtaposition of old to new.
