Interlinguistics

 

the branch of linguistics that studies the creation and functioning of various auxiliary languages, including international languages like Esperanto and Interlingua, on the one hand, and mathematical intermediate languages, logical information languages, and auxiliary codes for information-processing computers, on the other. At this level of generality, interlinguistics becomes an abstract theory of language, constructed on a logical-mathematical basis and having as its subject the relational framework of language.
