Replication of how text is perceived to non-speakers of the language [D]
A few days ago, I was reminded of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt4Dfa4fOEY which is an attempt to grasp how e.g. English sounds like to non-speakers. My question is: has there been any attempt to visualise this through how text looks like? For example, how does English look like to Cyrillic readers?
A possible method of replicating this that I have thought of is mapping the differences and nuances of how the language is displayed graphically and in terms of grammar and then reapplying that transformation to create an entirely new language. Is this possible? And if so, has anyone done it?
Any responses will be appreciated.
