I have my reasons, cited in another post.
I'd say I dislike your selection of auxlangs.
Better to leave them out, or include *my* favorite, Occidental,
which is likely the most recognizeable.
Like it or not, Esperanto shall be present. I don't care what you think on
that point. Otherwise...
-hey fred, cool T-shirt! Whats it about?
-its about artificial languages...
-so wheres that famous one, whats it called, Esperanto?
See? Esperanto is one or the more famous conlangs around. General awareness
of Occidental in teh non-conlanging community is only marginally greater
than the general awareness of my own Demuan language.
I am not entertaining such arguments on which auxlangs may be included.
However, I did invite people to send me descriptions of these
romance-aux-langs so that I could make a better judgement about which ones
might be excluded if necessary. So far, no one has sent such a description
in a readable format.
If you truly want a particular auxlang on it, describe it to me. For most,
all I have is teh translation.
