CreoLego -which increasingly is becoming somewhat more irregular and rambunctiously idiomatic than the "normal" extended pidgin or creole - has "logo" for "word/words" and "trademark" (but "logos" can mean "The Word" and "trademarks")... "lego" for "language" and the famous modular toy ("legoset" can mean "linguistics" or "languages" or several Lego toy kits, hehe) ;) Technically, I guess I can't call CreoLego a "creole" too much longer without doing that highly specific linguistic term semantic violence as some have done with the word "lingo" ;) *snarlfle!* :P~ Guess I hafta invent a sci-fi conculture-like _raison d'etre_ for CreoLego mutating from multilexifier pidgin to polyglot creole to whatever-the-hell-it-is-now... mayhaps CreoLego _is_ a lingo-heavy acrolect (?) ... ROTFLMAO Hopefully if I webify CreoLego (possibly with Christophe's eager linguavore assistance ::appreciative grin at CG:: ), Lego - the toy company - will not try any legal tricks and attacks on my poor lil _Stitch_ed-together-like/ _cento_ -like conlang ;) ';' <=== ASCII portrait of "Stitch" a.k.a.
