Why thanx. :) Mez (a.k.a. Mez-ling, Mezko-lingua, Lingua Mezkolanza) seems to be slowly evolvin' on its own toward bein' an interestin' polyglot pastiche of various pidgins and creoles, with some acidically FUNny things like _Yuro_ as a word for Europeans and _Miro_ for "people of darker-than-pinkish-skin" (this tidbit taken from the urban contact vernacular "pidgin" Sheng => SwaHili-ENGlish from Nairobi, Kenya). Also, cuz I like the onomatopoeia words from Japanese (& some other languages), I will be incorporatin' some of these as various parts of speech (i.e. adverbs, adjectives, etc.). zHANg
