1. How much of a language is silent? What does it look like when you take the silence out? Can we use Processing code as a tool to answer these questions?

    silenc is a tangible visualization of an interpretation of silent letters within Danish, English and French.

    One of the hardest parts about language learning is pronunciation; the less phonetic the alphabet, the harder it is to correctly say the words. A common peculiarity amongst many Western languages is the silent letter. A silent letter is a letter that appears in a particular word, but does not correspond to any sound in the word’s pronunciation.

    A selection of works by Hans Christian Andersen is used as a common denominator for these “translations”. All silent letters are set in red text. When viewed with a red light filter, these letters disappear, leaving only the pronounced text.
