Given the objectives that you mention, I'd strongly

For grammar of a bit more traditional type,
I'd suggest you look at Papiamentu.

Could you define "poetic disruptions"? Sound interesting. <clip>

The later have come to my attention. You are about the only other person I have heard mention them.

I think that I would say that I find Chinook "charming." Leo J. Moser
