|Private Language||I 127
It makes no sense to say that there is something about which we cannot talk.
Private Language/Dummett: E.g. assuming there was a new language similar to Esperanto: "interlingua". Invented by a speaker for purely private use: it is not subject to Wittgenstein s verdict against a private language, because the privacy of this language is only a contingent feature. It is just de facto known to only one person. Wittgenstein s arguments are directed against the possibility of an essentially private language. (> Private Language).
But Interlingua would not be independent from other languages, it would not exist in a vacuum.
Private Language: WittgensteinVs - DummettVsWittgenstein: an artificial private language is possible and can be learned.
