Barbara S. J. Balch and I presented a paper to MedArt International in 1992
proposing to take advantage of this possibility, which had not yet been
very well explored (and still isn't, apparently). "Composing a New
Language" can be found in the Southern Medical Journal (85:2), but we've
put it online: http://maltedmedia.com/books/papers/s6-compo.html

Sacks and his colleagues were going to take up the experiment, but it got
lost in their planning. Would have been interesting.
