LOL!! (Recalls an argument somebody made earlier, that people have very little motivation to learn a language that sounds silly... I mean, si-*li*... nothing like being asked to learn a language in which your name means "absurd"!)

[snip] ROFL!!! Well, *I'm* going to start using it, whether or not it catches on. Is it a coincidence that one of our conlang catch phrases happen to be "magge*li*ty"? :-P Hmm, according to the Ygyde noun/prefix tables, "maggelity" (or more precisely, 'magelity') appears to mean "detector environment absurd country". I'm not sure what that may mean; maybe Christophe can enlighten us. Or maybe it's all just li. :-P T -- Recently, our IT department hired a bug-fix engineer. He used to work for Volkswagen.
