update: GomiLego (was Creolego)

    I have been refining and simplifying my neo-futurist(ic) conlang
The revamped conlang once called "Creolego"  is now called _GomiLego_:
_gomi_ from Japanese for "trash, junk, etc" and _lego_ from Greek for
"language" as well as from the modular construction toy Lego :)
    Hence, GomiLego = "junk-language", "pidgin"/"creole", "kriol"...

    I am trying to stick with CV and CCV patterns (& variations thereof) in
the root-creation of short lengths (1-3 syllables, 2-6 letters, estimated).

    Dublex and Zengo are 2 conlangs that are direct influences on GomiLego.
Bislama, Tok Pisin, Chinese Pidgin English/_Ham Soi_ (pidgin Englishes and
creoles) are also major inspiratins for GomiLego.
    More insidious influences ;) are auxlangs like Novial, Glosa and
Interlingua (and one of Henry Miller's conlangs that I can't recall the name

    More details to come...

poet is most poetic when inventing languages. Hence the concept of the poet
as 'language designer'."  --- O. B. Hardison, Jr.
