Yes and everyone who disagrees is just being woke. I can prove this by inventing a conlang called shriekish which is just shrieking in Morse code. Anything above 110 decibels or the pain threshold for the human ear is considered a dash. Quieter shrieks that don’t cause pain, but are still loud are considered a dot. My language is objectively uglier than any human language and I take pride in that.

All human languages have beauty because they allow us to easily communicate and are easily pronounceable and comprehendable by the native speaker. Languages evolve for beauty to the ears of their speakers. But not all are created equal because some languages vary in purpose and function.

no, because beauty is subjective

doesn’t that still mean they can be more beautiful in a person’s subjective view? or in public opinion?

Nothing intrinsic; only through subjective associations one might make between the language and something else.

Depends on what you define as “beautiful” doesn’t it? I mean… some find LISP-likes nice, others think Haskell is nice, others think Ruby is. IMO just a matter of personal taste!

Technically, no. This is purely a matter of personal opinion/preference.

Yeah, every language especially the many and various indigenous languages of Australia, Africa, Asia, Americas, is more beautiful than the west europe’s language (including all its mutually unintelligible dialects)

i m curently speaking the sars-cov-english variant
