The Klemperer Rosette worlds at Ao Lai
A 45th century school of thought originating at Ao Lai that sought to maximize memetic diversity by reviving old languages or inventing new ones. The resulting Great Diversification movement led to the revival of thousands of extinct but unique languages from pre spaceflight Old Earth, Nanoswarm Age Solsys, the early Interstellar Era colonies, and elsewhere. It was widely emulated across the Terragen sphere at the time, and has experienced several local revivals since.
