Women's Language


#1

Really glad to see the forum back! Hello everybody!!! I have been playing around with the idea of rewilding minds by use of language, and found a science fiction book written in 1984 about a women’s language, that changed a culture, I know it’s sci fi but the ideas were intriguing and discovered the author is a linguist that created this language, I thought you might find it interesting…

Realize this is an older post, and I have not read the book you referred to, but your comment caught my interest and I am now curious if others have thoughts on this. The link you had provided is outdated now so I just did a simple search to get a frame of reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_Tongue_(Suzette_Haden_Elgin_novel% anyone want to chime in? Thanks much! :slight_smile:
