Hopelandic As even the earlier examples of nonsense do not fit neatly in their own boxes—Ball’s phonetic lautgedichte are phono-erotic but mystically incantatory, Kobaïan is a quasi-onomatopoetic xenogloss, Taylor spotlights the voice while effacing it—it should come as no surprise that Hopelandic cannot be said to be simply a manifestation of a single variety of nonsense. However, unlike so many other examples, Hopelandic seems to actively evade categorization through a series of contradictions that make such classification impossible.

As the linguist Steven Pinker writes, “an inventory of phonemes is one of the things that gives a language its characteristic sound,”12 and, indeed, even after a single listening to “Vaka,” Hopelandic’s very distinctive phonology becomes clearly apparent. In “Vaka,” there seems to be only about nine or ten syllables, which are transformed and subtly varied throughout the song. We can learn from the song’s limited phonemic palette not only about the characteristic sound of Hopelandic, but also how these sounds are organized.

In fact, the line that begins “Siri Suri Sei” ends with a pair of brackets surrounding an empty space, as if referring to an ineffability that not even spontaneous nonsense could express. While, for Burroughs, language itself was an alien parasite always in control of its human hosts, for the French philosopher Jean-Jacques Lecercle, it is specifically during states of glossolalia—or délire, as he calls it—that language takes control: [Language can] increase its power: it ceases to be controlled by the subject but on the contrary rules over him.
