Background

I am fascinated by the idea that people's experiences shape their use and take of language, such that everyone has their own "individual" language. Yet language is a common ground that allows communication, so how can individual languages and effective communication coexist? To begin answering this question, I'm using language models and reinforcement learning to model an individual language and use it to explore the following question: "Given one's individual language, how can they tell anyone anything in any amount of time?"
