I meant it as  a way to make words, and yes it has its limits, thank you
for point them out. But.. If done, with open ending, it could be
interesting to create.

If the heirarchy chart was done, it could be a bit more clear for people
to learn?

If anything could be a way to create new life form names, without the
current greco-latin hodgepodge that I think will have limites at times,
especially when you have one that is like 65 letters long.

Sounds like a classificational _a priori_ scheme. Problem with these kinds of lingos is that tho' simple, logical, & whatnot at the beginin's, these type of AuxLang/ConLangs become overwhelmin'ly complicated, arbitrary, & a real brain overload... also rigid classification systems tend to be resistant to incorporatin' new paradigms of thought & new facts/information. czHANg _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
