Your Language Are Belong to US
Help please us finding Ling-Ling
If language is important to
you, and if you've ever bought an electronic
musical instrument from Japan (or read one of my
more lightly proofread columns), then the
chances are you've encountered the Fobonic
dialect. Long ago, in another life entirely, I
worked a brief stint for a Japanese musical
instrument manufacturer, translating the manuals
from English-as-sent-from-Japan to English that
electronic musicians could understand. Alas, one
can't translate the operating system of these
instruments in addition to the manuals, so these
attempts are rather doomed from the beginning.
So I was thrilled to learn that the Institute
for Fobonics is now open for business at this
We have to thanks Curtis Fong
for his hard work and dedication. Here's his
Mission Statement, taken verbatim from the home
page for Fobonics.

time we are coming at you with this home page!
Accept no imitation!
The Fobonics Institute is
dedicated to promoting awareness and
appreciation of the Fobonics language and its
deep historical roots. We have no official PAC
lobbying Congress for government recognition,
nor are we trying to obtain funding for
Fobonics-specific programs in the federal
educational system. We simply feel that learning
the fine art of speaking in Fobonics can help
enrich lives and expand the level of
understanding between individuals. Please take
the time to learn from the following fine
examples of contemporary Fobonics. With patience
and effort, you too can learn to express all
your thoughts, feelings, even marketing slogans
and user manual content, in Fobonics.
