  • Kangoogo doesn't Google.

    So what is it?
    • From japanese it translates as a language that is made from a mixture of others. The english translation is creole, although this is typically associated with the language spoken from around Louisiana.
      adj 1: of or relating to a language that arises from contact between two other languages and has features of both; "Creole grammars" (taken from WordNet)
      English is a creole language, as is Perl. The fact that there are references to japanese in the apocolyses and the style of Perl 6 follows a japanese language structure in places, is what Marty's talk picks up on.
