My conlang-@-large creolego aims to do just that - plus it "cannibalizes" and "phagocytates" other languages as well. Ferinstanz, I just recently added "lol" - the Dutch word for "fun" and cyberslang for LOL - to creolego as its word for "highly amusing fun, usually accompanied by loud laughter." (Dank, Nederlanderen ::zwaaien::) I guess creolego will have several semantic degrees of "fun" at this rate ;) Not a bad thing if ya ask me... *googolgigglabyte/googolgelachbijte* Hanuman Zhang, 3-Toed-Sloth-Style Typist "the sloth is a chinese poet upsidedown" --- jack kerouac {1922-69} -------------------------------------------------- "There is no reason for the poet to be limited to words, and in fact the poet is most poetic when inventing languages.
