Loglan 88

Lojban — not "Loglan" — is a constructed, syntactically unambiguous human language designed to test the Sapir–Whorf hypothesis. The language was developed in the 1980s by merging elements of Loglan and the logical structure of some languages like Chinese and Russian. In 1997, the official organization for Lojban development, The Logical Language Group (LLG), released "The Complete Lojban Language". Lojban's grammar is based on predicate logic and natural-language constructs; its vocabulary is derived from several world languages. It has no irregularities and embraces precise semantics through its context-free grammar rules. While it remains largely unrecognized among global communications systems, it has gained popularity in certain groups of artificial intelligence development due to its precision.
