: Well, 17,636 most frequent words have been assigned word coordinates.
: It's not phonetics and it's not creative but systematic.
The missing "what it is" is "logical."
: Among casual people a list of popular word coordinates will develop.
They already have. Like English itself, dialects are not born through
proscription but through experimentation until common usage emerges.
: And professional or trade people will use the coordinates for some
large words that they find necessary.
That seems VERY unlikely, because any/all users will not be certain that any
recipient can decode their abbreviations.
And if you think recipients will be suckered into getting the app just
because a sender uses it, you have a nasty shock coming.
: But a cell phone with a scroll screen could allow the user to choose
: from a list of words but then convert to word coordinates when sending
: the message. Then the cell phone on the other end could decode.
A scroll screen that lists 17,636 options? I'm amazed you don't see the
inherent snags in this system.
: The current application is just a reference source.
And that is what it will remain.
