|The pyk language|
Pyk is a language for expressing mathematics in a seminatural style.
The name "pyk" is constructed from the name "Volapyk" in the same way that Rene Thom construct the word "versal" from "universal": "pyk" is constructed by removing "Vola" from "Volapyk".
Volapyk was an artificial language constructed from several other languages by simplifying their words and their grammar. As an example, the name of the language itself is constructed from "Vola" which is a simplification of "World" and "pyk" which is a simplification of "speak".
The pyk language may be used for "spoken mathematics" and may, among other, be entered through a microphone when editing mathematical text.
