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
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)
