Artistic writing attempts to craft a certain complexity of meaning that cannot be fully explicated or analyzed, because its quality is in part a matter of form, rhythm, juxtaposition, engagement, and response -- the experience of the journey.
The structure of artistic essays may be web-like rather than linear, creating nodes or points of resonance; it might be conversational or narrative; it might suggest a mosaic, a painting, or a piece of music; it might have a call-and-response or other traditional oral pattern; often, it will invite the reader on a journey.
For the transparent writer, language is almost mathematical: it is meant to be as precise and objective as possible, and as universally accessible.

 Artistic language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Overlapping with artistic languages is the group of philosophical languages, languages derived from some first principle.
Fictional languages are separated from artistic languages by both purpose and relative completion: a fictional language generally has the least amount of grammar and vocabulary possible, and rarely extends beyond the absolutely necessary.
An earlier instance is Philip José Farmer's Winkie language, a relative of the Germanic languages spoken by the Winkies of Oz in A Barnstormer in Oz.

 Artistic language - Definition, explanation
Fictional languages are intended to be the languages of a fictional world, and are often designed with the intent of giving more depth and an appearance of plausibility to the fictional worlds with which they are associated.
A personal language may be invented for the purpose of having a beautiful language, for self-expression, as an exercise in understanding linguistic principles, or perhaps as an attempt to create a language with an extreme phonemic inventory or system of verbs.
Artistic languages include languages of fictional worlds and peoples and for alternate histories, languages for micronations, languages created for humor and self-amusement and languages created for the pleasure of inventing a language.

 Postcolonial Film by John Ziniewicz
Hollywood is not completely without its artistic element, and it is in the purity of this artistic element that people living outside the context of European culture are able to, to a certain extent, directly perceive the artistic expression of the filmmaker.
A parallel can be made between visual language and verbal language, both in the 'creolization' of the given language of the colonial nation and in the emphasis on speaking the nativelanguage whenever possible.
Thus, in manipulating the visual language of the mix-en-scene, the filmmaker is practicing both of these modes of rebellion in inventing new semiotic structure.

 Tenuous Border   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
It is not the case for labeling the artistic language Performance which is probably the one who most hardly tried to deceive the classifications of theoretic, critics and journalists; rather, it tries to follow the tenuous borders of that language.
During the artistic Performance, the artist is dropped into a threshold problem; however, as conceptor and evaluator, respectively previously to and after the action, the artist needs to plunge into and fly over the research site, so as to proceed with the artistic creation process.
We would believe we had reached the Performance artistic language, since Phelan refers to the notion of presence and to the interaction of the art object with the viewer; however, her refers to photography, paints, films, theater pieces, and political claims.

 APA Newsletters 98:1 - Alain Locke and the Language of World Solidarity
The minority groups...take refuge in the common bond of their native language and tradition, and, after an interval of cultural reassertion and nationalism, develop ambitions for political independence or irredentist reunion with some larger political group of like language, tradition and culture.
Language serves as a "symbol of political allegiance and group solidarity in the contemporary world;" it is a myth, that, like the race myth, takes its place in conflict situations.
And further, "Language and blood are held to be basic bonds of social unity instead of common institutions, and this leads in their logic to the justification of the expulsion or extermination of all alien minorities.

 Languages and Cultures
Competence in a language other than English not only promotes international understanding and communication, but also increases students career opportunities in commerce and finance, diplomacy, library science, education, social work, publishing, communication, scientific and technical research, and the arts, and prepares them for graduate school, which normally requires proficiency in at least one foreign language.
Language courses at the 100 level introduce students to essentials of grammar, reading, oral fluency, and aural comprehension, as well as to a general understanding of the cultural context.
As one of the key languages of international diplomatic communication, literary creativity, and artistic achievement, French is a practical and useful language for career, personal and professional travel, and general cultural enrichment.

 World Auxiliary Language Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
A universal auxiliary language to be taught in all the schools of the world would ensure that future generations of students will not be unnecessarily forced to inherit the awkward necessity of learning a new language once they have passed the prime age at which language acquisition is fully automatic--sometime in adolescence or pre-adolescence.
However, some language minorities could conceivably either be phased out of instruction in their native language, or, if preservation of the local language is upheld as a priority, the learning of the national language could be abandoned as more venues (such as in voting, etc.) increasingly used the international language.
If it were actually deemed necessary to continue language in all three languages, then this could be done in order to give the language minority access to their own community’s heritage, that of the nation of which they are a part, and to that of the global community of which they are also a part.

 A Conlang FAQ
A constructed language, or conlang, is a language created consciously, usually by one person, rather than one evolving over long periods of time in a community of speakers.
J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the more famous conlangers of this century, devising numerous languages; he called conlanging his "secret vice." The medieval nun Hildegard of Bingen supplemented her vocabulary with almost 1000 words of Lingua Ignota, her "unknown language," when she wrote in Latin several hundred years ago.
Some conlangs are languages designed or intended to express meanings which other languages may ignore, neglect, suppress, etc., such as Laadan, created by Suzette Haden Elgin for her novel Native Tongue as a way to talk about women's language.

 Jedi Council Forums - The Language of Art
Like most other disciplenes such as mathematics, science, psychology, etc. Art is a language in the truest sense of the word; it gives us the ability to communicate the fathoms and depths of the human mind and explain them in a way that we could not do verbally.
Art transcends any one language and has an oral/aural/visual language of its own that is completley different and forever changing.
Language is just another tool for the creation of Art, and saying that Italian or French is more important than Spanish, English or Japanese is like saying that red paint is more important than green paint.

The first is the use of displaced spatial and temporal perspective in literary texts, as opposed to the kinds of displacement which occur in non-literary contexts.
The second is the relationship between form and meaning, or more precisely the relationships between form-meaning mappings, which characterise artistic or literary use of language.
One conclusion will be that literary texts can involve special meta-level blends, which link networks of form-meaning mappings; it is in large measure these meta-level blends which are the aesthetically special part of artistic language.

While I am in favor of the AL family of licenses, and I hope this essay will strengthen them, this essay is intended to give a comprehensive introduction and unbaised analysis of the Original Artistic License.

The Artistic License is perhaps best thought of an attempt to create an open-source license that eliminates or mitigates the more controversial aspects of the GPL.
