English is largely regarded as having 8 parts of speech. Pronouns are agreed
to be one of them, but a discussion on AUE revealed that EVERY part of
speech has its corresponding pro-part of speech. To whit:
method (thus, so, xxx, how)
type (this/that/yon/what kind of)
to do (who killed the taxman? he did it!)
to be (Who is lying on the floor? He is!)
Comments? Does anyone feel they can use this revelation in a conlang?
Rule One: Question the unquestionable,
ask the unaskable, eff the ineffable,
think the unthinkable, and screw the inscrutable.
