https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ithkuil

Natural languages are adequate, but that doesn’t mean they’re optimal,” John Quijada, a fifty-three-year-old former employee of the California State Department of Motor Vehicles, told me. In 2004, he published a monograph on the Internet that was titled “Ithkuil: A Philosophical Design for a Hypothetical Language.” Written like a linguistics textbook, the fourteen-page Web site ran to almost a hundred and sixty thousand words. It documented the grammar, syntax, and lexicon of a language that Quijada had spent three decades inventing in his spare time. Ithkuil had never been spoken by anyone other than Quijada, and he assumed that it never would be.

Yeah I was threading about this years ago. Ithkuil is fucking nuts.

There's a subreddit about it where people do translations.

"The ignored sensation of a questionable form of happiness" is like p'hùthâájīdr and then people start arguing over the roots and combinations and shit.
