yepyep. I like messiness... One major reason I was an AuxLang List heretic was that very point - towards the end of my auxlanging before my defection to this list, I was in favour of a highly _naturalistic_ pidgin-like auxlang that was based on Tok Pisin, China Coast Pidgin English, and Greco-Latin International Scientific Vocabulary. (Since then I have widened my interests ;) But the hardcore auxlangers didn't like mentions of either pidgins or "naturalism" - guess they are "control-freaks."

LOL! One of the risks of conlanging... a good number of us here have mental/psych problems and take meds for 'em... (or should) ...
