    Default What if

    ...for the rest of your life, all communication could only involve 30 words (including sign language, you couldn't sign language other words). What would the 30 words be and why? Of course you may use all the words you want to answer the question. Proper nouns don't count as part of the 30 words.

    I tried posting this on INTPc, and most only commented on how lame it is or tried to outwit the whole question so that they wouldn't have to answer *sigh*. Since there are some extroverts and other types on here that seem to value communicating with others, maybe it will be taken more seriously .

    Well, duh!

    THIRTY words? What kind of lazy Ps would be willing to come up with such a long list for such a hard-to-reason-out hypothetical situation?

    Make it, like, 5 words.

    Assuming there are no restrictions on names or numbers:

    1. correct

    2. there

    3. have

    4. can

    5. what

    9. be

    10. was

    11. if

    12. then

    13. that

    14. at

    15. place

    16. get

    17. find

    18. is

    19. it

    20. here

    21. and

    22. not

    23. or

    24. as

    25. to

    26. do

    27. in

    28. ex (latin)

    29. will

    30. how

    I regret that I couldn't use anything but these words, because they are inadequate for emotions. But if we were limited to such a small number of words, these would have to take precedence. Personal pronouns could be replaced with a proper noun in every situation if they weren't included in the default words, meaning this would still work. It wouldn't be much of a language, but it would still be able to express basic concepts.

    Note that it works especially well if other tenses of the chosen words are allowed, and personal pronouns are included.
