Lojban is a carefully constructed spoken language designed in the hope of removing a large portion of the ambiguity from human communication.

Have any of you studied Lojban? Can you suggest any sources that might make my own journey easier?
What do you like about the language?
What rough spots did you cross in studying it?
What advantages do you think there would be for our species if it were made the universal language, and a mandatory subject in school?

(I can’t stop singing this! It’s a beautiful and amusing song!)
I tried learning the sounds before worrying about the meaning, much like a child learns language. So I could sing this pretty well before I knew what I was saying. It’s kinda like when English speakers learn “Frère Jacques” without actually knowing what they are saying word for word.
I really want to learn more about lojban but I’m in doubt. Why learn a language if I have no one to speak it with? Are there any active forums or chats? It be nice if there was someone here that practices it to talk to.
najakan asked: Have you heard of the jazz song "Summertime" by George Gershwin sung AND translated in lojban? look up la crisa ditcu on youtube to hear this beautiful rendition!
I have listened to it multiple times and have reblogged it here on Tumblr. :)
