Unicode

Unicode is the computer standard which, ideally, allows all the characters of all the world's languages (plus mathematics and all the sciences) to be represented. Here's a YouTube video of the first 65,536 characters (using 16 bits each). The video is over 33 minutes long. Be careful, I'm sure there are words from alien religions in there.

The latest version of Unicode has 109,000 characters. Those will be in the sequel, or maybe a mini-series, which would allow for greater story development.
