"There are no nouns in Tlön’s conjectural Ursprache, from which the ‘present’ languages and the dialects are derived: there are impersonal verbs, modified by monosyllabic suffixes (or prefixes) with an adverbial value. For example: there is no word corresponding to the word ‘moon,’, but there is a verb which in English would be ‘to moon’ or ‘to moonate.’ ‘The moon rose above the river’ is hlor u fang axaxaxas mlo, or literally: ‘upward behind the onstreaming it mooned.’”

You had me at hello, Mr. Borges.
