language reduced to seven words.

WE EACH NEED TO HAVE A DICTIONARY

Today’s prompt asks us to reduce all language to just seven words  that would be indispensable. Well, as I assume the object of this exercise is so that everyboy could communicate with everbody else on earth, I suggest that someone should compile a lexicon including every tongue that is spoken on earth. This should be done digitally so that anything one wanted to say, or understand when spoken by someone else, could just be typed in the desired language of the speaker. Then everyone else would set their mobile computers, or whatever they were known as, to their own language and anything addressed to them would appear in a script they understood.

I expect that if this were to become a successful project the only seven words everyone would need to know and understand would be the title of this brief idea. God help hard working authors if it ever got off the ground.
