AE. INTRO 5

An impressionistic history of the South Asian subcontinent - 5 -

This writer, after a lot of observations and experimentations, has defined languages as of two different categories. Languages like English were categorised as planar languages. Languages which have word-codes of feudal lowliness versus heights were defined as feudal languages. 

In connection with this, a draft form of the book MARCH of the EVIL EMPIRES: English versus the feudal languages was first written in the year 1989. Around the year 2000, the completed version of this book was published online. 

As of now, this book is available for free download on this link.  It is available on many other websites also. 

In this book, a contention that languages are either software codes or software applications had been mentioned. 

After many years, when direct observations on the real codes in languages were made, it was felt that the word ‘feudal’ was inadequate as a technical word to define the phenomenon. 

It was then that a few years back that it was understood that a more apt technical usage would be: '3-D Virtual Arena-coded languages'. In accordance with this understanding, this technical usage was made in the book: Pristine-English: What is different about it?

However, it must be admitted that the usage ‘feudal language’ is relatively more comfortable to use. 

The languages of South Asian peninsular region do have the codes of Asian feudal hierarchy encoded inside them. It is not possible to claim that this is a new discovery. This is a fact which is commonly known by all people of this geographical region. 

When this fact was mentioned in the Wikipedia page on languages, it was immediately removed. 

When a request was made in the Talk page of Malayalam language in Wikipedia to mention the feudal features of the Malayalam languages, some over-intelligent, self-conceited ‘language scholar’ who was administering that page, after placing a very sarcastic hint that Wikipedia is not a place for uneducated persons to write, and using low-quality shortcuts to display his English language acumen, had the request strikethroughed. After sometime, the whole request was seen removed.

When a government order was promulgated in 2011, making it compulsory to study Malayalam language, this writer did file a writ-petition against that order in the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala. The contentions were that feudal languages were against the basic tenets of the Constitution of India; that these languages were totally against the right to equality before the law, and the right to personal dignity and stature of the citizen; and that these kinds of languages would create at least three different levels of citizenship in the nation. This writer himself did the arguments in the High Court. The complete set of arguments can be seen on this link

In these arguments, Malayalam was also mentioned as a feudal language. However, both the government side as well as the Malayalam language protection organisation which joined the opposite side, claimed that there is no such things as a ‘feudal language’, mentioned in language science. 

Almost all people in this peninsular region are aware of the fact that the native languages here do have words of Asian feudal hierarchy. The claim that even this very simple fact is not known to language science, only points to the very shallow depth of such ‘sciences’.  

I do feel that language science does use a terminology mentioned as ‘Honorific’. However, this word is not apt or capable enough to define feudal languages.
