Great question Stephen. E-Prime language translations of semantically ill-formed utterances (cause-effect, mind reading, lost performative) lead to more accurate (as determined by their usefulness) descriptions of the world and to an increase of both behavioral choice and of generalized resourcefulness. But what ends when the chatter shatters? Consider the poem, Silence on Objective Levels by Landier:

For those of you interested in discovering what Stephen was referring to, here's a link to an E-Prime (English Prime) primer written by Robert Anton Wilson that is an excellent illustration of both E-Prime language patterning and of non-Aristotelean logic:
