Mr. Nowicki, are you teachable?
Pan napisal:

<<"Milk," "mother," "is," and a few other words sound similar
in all Indo-European languages. This seems to prove that
names of basic ideas do not change.>>

Stupidity! "Milk" is |lapte| in Romanian, |pienas| in Lithuanian, |galá| in
Ancient Greek, |thut| in Romani -- what other proof ye seek? And common
origin of Ukrainian |je| and Lathvian |ir| (both mean "is") can be evident
only to a specialist!

<<Technology and television are melting pots of

Melting pots of brains they are!

<<I do not know Chinese,
but I guess that it may be good at coining new words too.>>

As good as my native Russian and my actually spoken Ukrainian and my
liturgic Hebrew and my constructed Rumiya and such a pleasant-sounding
Hungarian etc. etc. etc.

<<The English computer terms are very similar to Polish
and Russian computer terms.>>

Has a French |logiciel gratuit| something in common with English |freeware|?
