   Lojban (pronounced [ˈloʒban]) is an experiment in human language – a
   constructed language based on formal logic.

What is Lojban?

   a «lightning talk» introduction to Lojban by Timo Paulssen
   «ro lo ma'a datka» and other Lojban songs by la guskant

   Lojban is a carefully constructed spoken language. It has been built
   for over 50 years by dozens of workers and hundreds of supporters.
     * Lojban's grammar is simpler than of most natural languages, but
       complex in its own unique way. Lojban is an experiment in thought,
       as well: its users aim to see how its unique language structures
       affect thought and understanding.
     * Lojban allows the expression of tiny nuances in emotion, using
       words called attitudinals, which are essentially spoken emoticons.
     * Lojban allows you to communicate concisely without unnecessary or
       undesired details. For example, you don't have to always think of
       what tense (past, present or future) to use in a verb when it's
       already clear from context.
     * Lojban is machine parsable, which allows potential new explorations
       in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine translation.
     * Lojban has a live community of speakers expanding its vocabulary
       day by day.
     * Lojban is designed aiming at being neutral between cultures.

Lojban means different things to different people

     * a linguistic curiosity - a test-bed for language experimentation
     * a challenging way to expand their minds or discipline their
     * a new perspective on languages
     * an entertaining medium to communicate with friends or create art
     * a domain for exploring the intersection of human language and
