parsanali, aai laaik globish veri mach bat aai think dhaet soam peepal wil dizagree widh dha hool aaidee:. bee priperd foar a kaaind oav trench woarfer! ;-) wau! noat so eezi tu spel dhaet simpal sentens! aai haed tu dabal-chek dha pranansyeishan oav evary ward in maai dikshanari:. Personally, I like Globish very much but I think that some people will disagree with the whole idea. Be prepared for a kind of trench warfare! ;-) Wow! Not so easy to spell that simple sentence! I had to double-check the pronunciation of every word in my dictionary. (And I'm sure there is still one or two mistake here and then.) An official bilingual English-Globish dictionary is definitively what is needed so I could check what I wrote. Besides, a bilingual dictionary is a better idea than to let someone on a distant desert island lost in the far north decide for over a billion people how they should write. ;-) Any way, I can hardly wait to see Globish in action. I like so much pseudo-phonetic spellings! Maybe in the headline of a newspaper? Farst maan oan Maars iz a wumaan! ;-) See ya, ================== Remi Villatel ==================
