So far, my comprehension of Polish, German, English, Russian, Bulgarian, French, Italian, Spanish (and some woefully inadequate Latin) has shown me the limitations of Indo-European forms of articulation. Having spent a dozen years exploring Indian roots has, due to circumstances, not brought me any closer to a meaningful grasp of Sanskrit, the only human language accessible (some wish to argue, by intelligent design?) to machines. Programming languages hold the same interest – and the same limitations – for me as human ones, at least until their users will have moved a lot closer to the singularity. But I have not given up on learning under those constraints, since command of language correlates rather decently with any progress made, not like a balloon loan repayable only at maturity. Time and opportunity permitting, I may yet venture in due course into Mandarin, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew and attempt at least some degree of functionality in Portuguese. It is entirely likely, given professional and other interests, that old age will catch up with me sooner, but even less charitable predictions have not all come true.
