"If you imagine all the possible notions, ideas, beliefs, and statements that a human mind could ever express, Ithkuil provides a precise set of coﾃｶrdinates for pinpointing any of those thoughts. The final version of Ithkuil, which Quijada published in 2011, has twenty-two grammatical categories for verbs, compared with the six窶"tense, aspect, person, number, mood, and voice窶"that exist in English. Eighteen hundred distinct suffixes further refine a speaker窶s intent.
