Abstract

In the language Patentspeak (more precisely, its American dialect), every sentence or phrase is required to be the title of a patent issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The number of issued U.S. patents is nearing the six million mark; nonetheless, Patentspeak is still a highly constrained language, due to the range of vocabulary available and the fact that patent titles are usually long phrases, not isolated words.
