If you're talking about Lojban, it is LR(1) parseable, and parsers

It is the only language I am aware of that is computer parseable and
yet sufficient for expressing a broad range of human thought. We
haven't come up with anything that can't be expressed in it that I'm
aware of, although somethings are needlessly verbose. Vocabulary's
still a bit lacking, but it's extensible.
