The poetry snippet

The snippet of poetry that I posted was Lojban and consisted of attitudinals. The entire poem is:
.ua.u'a.ua.u'a
.u'e.u'e.ui.u'a
.oinai.ua.ui.u'a
. This would translate literally as:
discovery. gain. discover. gain.
wonder. wonder. happiness. gain.
pleasure. discovery. happiness. gain.
But it comes off much better here:
Eureka! Eureka!
What a moment! Eureka!
What a joy! Eureka!
I really like lojban and it's one of those things that if I had a little more time, I would work on. Unfortunately, I don't have the time for what I need already...

That there are specific words to express emotions/attitudes is just one of the nifty things tucked into the language. It also has ways to express "I'd like to interrupt": ta'a. Lojban was created with Einsteinian spacetime in mind and so the twists and turns that are needed to describe time travel are trivial in lojban. There much that can be done and so little time to study it in...
