--> 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? -well, actually... 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. --- Fabian Jkun li dik il-kitba tpatti it-tieba ta' qalb ta' patruni tieghi. Jkun li ttaffi ugigh tal-Mitlufin u tal-Indannati.
