HEY! I did NOT come up with this Globish. I just thought it was a neat non-native/nativist-English-speaker's approach that this professor/educator from India came up with. Besides, many of us on this list see waaaay too many native/nativistic English-speaker proposals ... And the Prof. clearly states it's not to replace any existing Englishes in any way, fashion or form, that Globish is a parallel language to English... rather different to/from English (In way simpler terms - since some did not grasp that, he is proposing a Globish dialect, 'k?). That Globish can _possibly_ function sorta like an ITA (Initial Teaching Alphabet)-like "interlanguage" of English - to help language-learners in transitioning from - for example - native Indian languages to comprehensible WES (World English Standard). Elsewhere, he also hints that Globish might eventually develop a life (grammar?) of its own in the hands of people and he seems to actually delight in that idea. A very reasonable & realistic lang-planning approach... create the initial "rough" idea, let it loose & see where it goes (if anywhere)...

Me, too.

Maybe, hopefully, someday in India, where this Prof. Manogate (sp?) lives... --- º°`°º ø,¸¸,ø º°`°º ø,¸¸,ø º°`°º ø,¸¸,ø º°`°º º°`°º ø,¸~-> Hanuman "Mister Sinister" Zhang, Sloth-Style Gungfu Typist - "the sloth is a chinese poet upsidedown" --- Jack Kerouac {1922-69} <A HREF="">=></A> "Poems are sketches for existence." - Paul Celan "One thing foreigners, computers, & poets have in common is that they make unexpected linguistic associations." --- Jasia Reichardt "There is no reason for the poet to be limited to words, & in fact the poet is most poetic when inventing languages.
