Logical language

From The Toaq Wiki
(Redirected from Loglang)

A logical language or loglang is a spoken language that is syntactically unambiguous in its encoding of logical forms[1].

There is some debate[2] about the exact definition of "loglang", and in its most general sense it may refer simply to a conlang that is somehow based on logic. Toaq calls itself a loglang in a rather strict sense compared to its predecessors Loglan and Lojban — see the blog post by Hoemaı[3].

The "unambiguous encoding" implies that sentences in a loglang can be parsed and converted into their logical forms by a computer program. Zugaı aims to do this for Toaq.
