  • Zaum (Russian: зáумь¸) are the linguistic experiments in sound symbolism and language creation of Russian-empire Futurist poets such as Aleksei Kruchenykh, Velimir Khlebnikov and Vasily Kamensky.

    Coined by Kruchenykh in 1913, the word zaum is made up of the Russian prefix – за – «beyond, behind» and noun – ум – «the mind, nous» and has been translated as «transreason», «transration» or «beyonsense» (Paul Schmidt). According to scholar Gerald Janecek, zaum can be defined as experimental poetic language characterized by indeterminacy in meaning.

    Kruchenykh, in «Declaration of the Word as Such (1913)» declares zaum «a language which does not have any definite meaning, a transrational language» that «allows for fuller expression» whereas, he maintains, the common language of everyday speech «binds.» He further maintained, in «Declaration of Transrational Language (1921)» that zaum «can provide a universal poetic language, born organically, and not artificially, like Esperanto.»
