Yep. Damn bloody proud of the fact too (I pissed-off Wendy Ashby - one of
the Glosa "founding members" or whatever - by my insistence that Glosa needed
to be way more fun and naturalistic if it was to get any popular interest,
pointin' out Klingon's subcultural popularity). & a lotta Glosa peeps I
corresponded with had no clue what I meant by referring to pidgin and creole
languages, "contact languages," etc!
Mosta the _plu/poli Glosa-pe_ have no clue to even the most basic
problems of interlinguistics/auxlang theories... I would even dare say they
have no grasp at all of basic linguistic theory (even less than my grasp of
linguistics & that is not sayin' much for them ;)
czHANg, who insists & knows that ConLangers have more overall fun than
AuxLangers (and not only that, have better overall socialization - & email -
enuff said on this... ::goes back to tweakin' Lego... with real gusto & a
wicked grin & tongue-firmly-in-cheek::
