Constructed Pidgin Language;
mainly associated with Neo-Futurist "XenoCultura" and its "CaosDao" sound-art
& anti-Art;
high lexical similarity with Latinate English, Italian and Spanish with some
borrowings from various natural and constructed languages, pidgins/creoles,
slangs, and onomatopoeia.
 Typology: SVO.
Early 2000's: attractive, subversive interlingual/Internet "alternative" to
English, Spanish and other languages
