Yep, I was interested in Glosa for some years. But I found out that most Glosalists are rather hardcore auxlangers & tend to take a very dim view of "lingua-mangling" much less Pidgin (all my correspondence with Glosalists regarding Pidgin languages tended to be rather negative... ) As it has been pointed out, auxlangers tend to think with a bit of an authoritarian streak. And no wonder there are some many schisms in all the various major IAL camps (i.e. Esperanto, Novial, Loglan, etc. Glosa... ad infinitum). more fun to "lingua-mangle" =) [perhaps in Synthrax: "lingua-fracti"? kinda nice to have both connotations of "fracturing" & fractals/chaos implied =) ] zHANg
