AiYaH!!! At least _someone_ finds humour in this... --- Hanuman Zhang, Sloth-Style Gungfu Typist "the sloth is a chinese poet upsidedown" --- Jack Kerouac {1922-69} Language[s] change[s]: vowels shift, phonologies crash-&-burn, grammars leak, morpho-syntactics implode, lexico-semantics mutate, lexicons explode, orthographies reform, typographies blip-&-beep, slang flashes, stylistics warp... linguistic (R)evolutions mark each-&-every quantum leap... "Some Languages Are Crushed to Powder but Rise Again as New Ones" - title of a chapter on pidgins and creoles, John McWhorter, _The Power of Babel: A Natural History of Language_ = ! gw3rraa leg0set kaakaa! ! riis3rvaa, saaIlvaa, riikuu, sk0paa-g0mii aen riizijkl0! = (Fight Linguistic Waste! Save, Salvage, Recover, Scavenge and Recycle!)
