Here are some sentences told via a metaphorical, pictographic 'language' that I came up with. But what do you think they say?
There's a long(ish) story behind why I've made these, but for now I'm just curious about how people interpret them!
The idea is to have a 'language' which gets at the root of communication without getting lost in specific words. Each of the symbols represents a general concept - often metaphorical - and they can be grouped together to form composites with new meanings. The idea is to be intuitive, though; ideally, they should be readily understood by anyone from anywhere without anything having to be learned.
But! While they may sense in my bizarre brain, I have absolutely no idea how other people would interpret them! So I'd absolutely love to hear what you think each of these 'sentences' say! Imagine that you received each of them as a text message from a friend, or something; that's the context in which they should be interpreted.
They look a bit like rebuses, but while those use pictures to represent words in a particular language via homophony (like a bee to represent the word 'be', or 2 for 'to'), these are 'language agnostic'; no knowledge of written or verbal language is necessary to interpret them.
I'll explain what they actually mean in my next post. Some are things people might actually say, some are just silly!
