Thanks for your message. But, Indika is not an auxlang. I made it regular,
because unlike most people I like regular languages. Here is the evolution
of the name Nihilosc:
Nihilosc (c pronounced 'ts')
I really did not know about the name Nihil Sum and Narbonosc.

Well, I do not know HTML. On my computer also, the dictionaries take quite a
long time to load.

I have made a blunder on all my pages, writing Nihilosc-Indika dictionary
instead of Nihilosc-English dictionary. Wonder how many of you noticed it.
Will correct the mistake tomorrow evening.
