The Angelical Language Wiki
- I recently stumbled upon this gem, and thought I would share it with you folks.
It is a Wiki dedicated to Dee's Angelical Language, and it uses my own work among its primary source material. (Including my Angelical Language books, my onli...ne Angelical pronunciation guide, and more..) :) It also includes Donald Laycock's work, material directly from Dee's journals, the Book of Loagaeth, etc, etc, etc. It appears to be a massively ambitious project!
This is exactly the kind of thing I hoped my work would inspire, and I can't wait to see how the wiki grows over time.
- Hi,I'm glad to hear you like the site! I'm actually the primary contributor; after taking a break for about a year or so I've started adding content again (between me and one other contributor the content has more than doubled in the last few weeks, its now about 1300 pages). There is still a massive amount to do even just collecting all the different translations and transcriptions of the calls. The the last few weeks I've spent a lot of the time focused on Loagaeth translations. I've added part of a translation of Table 1A from the AOM as well as my own translations of the first couple lines of tables 1A, 1B, and 2A. Who knows if any of these translations are 'correct' but my philosophy is to try collect them together with the info about how the translations were arrived at and let the reader decide which, if any, translations are correct.Kate
Sorry it took so long to approve this message. The New More-Terrible Yahoo still likes to conceal messages from me... :(
Anyway, yes I love the site and I'm glad to see you're a member here, too. This is a VERY low noise group. We hashed out a lot of issues with Loagaeth (see the archives if that's still possible) and it's been quiet ever since. lol
Also, me and Dean Hildebrant (did I even come close to spelling that right??) are working on a new Enochian wiki that might link up very well with yours. Once we get some material put together, it would be awesome do a link exchange. :)

There's a d between the n and t, and I could mention your grammar. The site is http://enochianwiki.wikispaces.com/ and I've got much of the material from the old Ored Dhagia site up already, though some could use some editing.-Dean

Wow I was closer than I thought! :) lol
<<<and I could mention your grammar.>>>
Please no... :D

- Yeah I can't wait to get the time to dig through the archive here and see what you were able to draw from it. This summer I will be doing some formal research into picking out words in unknown languages without known word separation (with the tables of Loagaeth as an example) using several different techniques such as analyzing frequency of letters and several AI techniques. Of course who knows if this is a 'real' language, but regardless of that it should be amenable to analysis.Right now I have written a program that will extract all letter combinations found in Loagaeth (using a sort of hybrid of the kondor.de and AOM transcriptions minus tables 25b-28b) sorted by length, frequency, or asphabetically. The lists linked to here only include combinations that occur 3 times or more except uncommon.txt which has the ones that only occur once or twice. Those files can be found here: https://bitbucket.org/threekate/angelicalanalyzer/downloadsThis is very much still in the very initial phases as the real work on it will be done this summer, but it will all be available on that bitbucket project page - still the files as they are right now are probably useful to people looking to understand Loagaeth.I look forward to seeing you guys new wiki, I'm sure there will be plenty places to cross-link.
- Ah ok, that site! Yeah I've been keeping an eye on it :-) There are several things I want to link to and or incorporate into angelical.wikia.com, so much to do still! It has made it onto my todo list already at least.
Sounds like you're serious about cracking Loagaeth! Good luck with that... lol
If it helps, I have personally become convinced that the first table of Loagaeth ("Zuresk..." - the one with entire words in each cell, found at the very end of the 5 Books) is the key to the rest of the text. Kind of a grammar lesson, if you will, so the rest of the tables might be understandable.
The work I've done on Loagaeth so far has been focused there, gathering words together based on similarities in spelling/letter combinations. As far as I got, I did find that there are established words there - repeated several times each with different prefixes, affixes and spelling changes very similar to what we see in the 48 Keys. (All of this work is in my Temple, sitting in hand-written notes on a bookshelf. Someday I need to get it completed so I can share it with you and others...)
Can you send me a private email? I'd like to have you in my contacts - when I finally gather my Loagaeth notes together, I think your Wiki might be the perfect place to put them. :)
