But as it states on that page "X-1 is still under
development; consider everything in this article work in
progress," I'm not sure that it really counts.
When I was still intending to develop a loglang, I did have
a page in which I discussed the Huffman-like encodings and
why I rejected such a scheme. The page is at present
off-line. I guess with the present interest in Plan B, I
ought to think about getting it - or a modified version of
the page - back online.
But I know of no other conlang that uses it. Basically, it
seems to me that using Huffman-like encodings is fine for a
computer and, maybe, extra-terrestrial aliens but not for
human usable languages.
Nid rhy hen neb i ddysgu.
There's none too old to learn.
