Thanks Jack, but could you hold off a few days until I get some of the rough edges off it. I put it together last night late and I left some things out. I had been using a smaller version. Also if you have any additions to the cheet-sheet and pronoun set you would like to add, let me know.

Well I appreciate that you're trying to get as much mileage out of the Ogdens and their derivatives as possible, and that provides a check against an unstructured and chaotic vocabulary development. My only objection to this route is the word length that sometimes happens.

I have a space holder for your website in the writekit and I will put the URL in. It seems that you and I and Stephen and Carlos are the ones who are currently making the revolution, and I do pray we wind up long term friends. And that the burden of building NGL will be shared with many others, including some of the lost contributors from the early days. Jerry
