solresol, the musician's language

do you know solresol (la Langue musicale universelle made by françois sudre 1817 .. 1855)?


you can play solresol

you can speak solresol

you can write solresol using music notation

you can also write solresol using all kind of alphabets (or chiffres!) including braille

you can paint solresol in the seven rainbow colours (1

you can sign solresol (1

you can knock solresol (1


(1 = especially for handicapped people


solresol is completely light to learn, so speak to write

only 7 syllables (do re mi fa sol la si)

nothing difficult to pronounce for all people of the world

minimal grammar (more easy than basic english!)


completely impartial


it was possible for my to buy in the last days the complete old book of sudre (edition of 1866) with the complete french-solresol dictionary (more than 12000 french words) and i will try to publish a lot new words each day

if you want to speak it and don't know a word or the other you can ask me on the yahoo solresol group

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/solresol

you will find my published copy of the book as soon the parts appairs online at

http://solresol.eu.tt


i wish you and your children a lot fun time using solresol!

Didn't the aliens in "Close Encounters" have a language like that?

That sounds hilarious... i think "crescendo" and all that stuff counts as musician language. just as "grunt grunt" is roadie language.

Basic English is very hard to learn from what I've heard.

Standard notation is good enough for me, thanks.

Why is solresol based upon the diatonic scale, and not chromatic scale, I wonder. Very constricting.
