The unfortunate things are that: 1) I don't have a lotta CPE (Chinese Pidgin English) materials to go on... 2) I find that a quite a lotta Anglo-Saxon-ish English-lexifier words do not seem to go too well aesthetical (to me) with Viivo's more-or-less mutant Italo-polyglottism. Naturally, of course, I would not mind having more CPE info (like: Just what is _-said_ in CPE? "side"? I have not come across it in the scanty materials I have on CPE) Not-'raid-to-ask-"dumb-questions" czHANg
