Back on the 23rd I provided a link for more information about bliss:

Persons interested in this should learn about Blissymbolics, a
communication system originally Developed by Charles K. Bliss
(1897-1985) for
the purpose of international communication (think "League of Nations"
and you
will have an idea of how successful he was).  Bliss has fewer than one
hundred
primitives that can be combined into thousands of words.  Visit
Blissymbolics
Communication International for more information
(http://home.istar.ca/~bci/).
