Hi

I've been meaning to ask, have any of you Knowflakes, fortunate enough to be fluent in languages other than English found that lexigramming works just as well in that language?

Fundamentally.. theoretically it should because the true meaning should be embedded within the word.

Would anybody have any examples of this working?

I'm very interested to find out

In the Russian and Ukrainian languages lexigams are known as anagrams. Anagramming is considered to be a mere word game nothing more. (something like a crossword puzzle, charade)

Hi Peri, good to see you

Have you seen anybody attempt to take that anagram further in Russian or Ukranian ~ and delve into the hidden meanings of the words as we've seen in this forum?

I wondered if the concept of Lexigrams were only taught in English. After a brief search on the net, I couldn't find anything to say otherwise.

No!

I have got the same search results and agree with you, the concept of Lexigrams is only taught in English!

Of course they work in other languages!
I wanted to talk about that before but upset too many people.
But because it is a conflict of interest...
I can not talk about what I know in detail or where and what....and how...

But yes...not a problem. The biggest thing is the type of alphabet. Chinese must be phonetically changed to our alphabet.

Latin...and other languages work beautifully.
And any language can be adapted.....
Especially with our "sound" concept version.
Well...I wish I could say more...
but I cannot...

Just wanted to say YES! Lexigrams are NOT only for English! And anything can be lexigrammed. Ok..I will shut up now....
As to other languages...
The DaVinci Code goes into that matter a wee bit.

Why did they get upset, Fayte?

Well, of course lexigrams do work in other languages BUT lexigramming is not something common or widespread in other languages (at least not in the Slavic languages), I think. When I first got here, I had never heard before of it as something more serious than just a word game, I've searched loads of sites but could find only info relating to lexigramming in English.

Peri
Because this is a site for Linda Goodman...
I must not talk about these matters much.
Or be VERY careful to not offend again.
It is very difficult to talk about why without "talking about" it! What I do and how!
So.........
Ok..folks..
Peri has asked a valid question.
I will not discuss my ways..or business interests...or the things that conflict with the LG rules here.

If Peri wishes to e-mail me...
That is fine by me.

I am doing my best to be respectful and yet be a participant here.
Thank you!

Hey fayte,

Was it already brought up then? I must've missed it. I understand if you've had an adverse reaction before here and you choose not to say it. However, speaking your views and/or passing on a view of another and discussion on the topic is encouraged here. So fore warned is fore armed I say! If we know it's controversial, I'm sure as adults, we can deal with it - as long as there is no abuse or personal attacks, I don't see a problem. LL has been through it's trials of misunderstandings, forthright opinions and viewpoints as we're all aware.

Fire away! I'm intrigued

However, as I said, if you choose to refrain I shall respect that, but please email me. The link should be near the top left of the forum page.

Sheaa Olein!
I am still not sure how to talk about lexigrams/lexigramming here without talking about my ways and experiences. Which do clash with LG's ways and most folks here.
And also many are trade secrets...I am not allowed to discuss.
I might e-mail you later.
Thank you for the offer and request!

My personal opinions is

ENGLISH
IS a
LIVING LANGUAGE

i speak french fluently, and currently working
on my writting skills, moved to US when I was 2, just moved back to Canada, last October
and Lexigramming doesn't really work in french,
just a little.

just my thoughts

Love and Light to ALL

Hi lotusheartone Yes, that's what I was wondering. Not really being able to delve into the subtlties of other languages I couldn't really speak for it myself.

My uncle lives in Canada right now also. Did you celebrate thanksgiving this year? Thanks for your insight hon

Take you guys,
Sheaa
