LOL!  I'd consider Finnegans Wake to exemplify anti-patterns in the realm of clear communication.

better to use spaces; I'm afraid you would put a , after thurnuk just to keep regex happy.

Indeed!

Timing is everything in communications.

Spoken language has spaces between the words and yet they vary in length to signify or delimit clauses and other structures. A hyphen is almost like a half space, a comma is a double space, a semicolonial is ..., etc.

The problem is the weird little marks are restricted to integer multiples of time but the actually spacing is closer to a floating point variable. Maybe we need something more like music annotation to exactly specify word cadence and spacing. Otherwise every sentence sounds robotic.

I met someone involved in folk music who was trying to document Swedish folk songs. They were forced to use 1/128th notes to attempt to approximate the timing patterns in the songs.

How about we create a set of 4-bit vari-pause marks that can represent anything from 1/4 of space (one of Paul's nested short-hyphens) to a 4X space for a full stopper. Or should it be a log scale?

  • Dit boek word veel aangehaald door de pioniers van het bewustzijn ,mensen zoals Robert Anton wilson ,hyaat enz.Dus eindelijk de stap genomen om het te kopen ,ik wist geen gemakkelijk Engels en geen gemakkelijk boek.Nou in een woord niet te volgen het Engels niet en daardoor het verhaal niet.Ik dacht dat het aan mij lag maar na wat speurwerk heeft bijna iedereen het zelfde .Dus ik raad je aan of de Nederlandse versie te kopen of je moet een kei in Engels zijn .Een miskoop

Sad when middle-aged men start reading Ulysses. It means they will never get to FW. Like group theory, you should read no later than 16.
BTW I have 1st editions of both books.

JC missed the whole point of the book (politics is only one thread). He did not mention the hero Leopold Bloom who was a Jew.
