Europanto et al.

Europanto: a macaronic conlang.  Information available at , mostly in
Europanto with some French.  There seems to be no formal or
informal description, but there is plenty of text.

Norman Spinrad wrote _The Void Captain's Tale_ and some other
work in a similar Europastiche, and it also reminds me, somehow,
of the treatise on sex quoted in Nabokov's _Ada_:

> "... por un strong-guy contino-contino-contino jusque le plesir > brimz, en svvitchera a l'altra gropa [groove] ... La transita > e facilitata per positio torovago ...
Nabokov goes on to explain that this "positio" is "that adopted in the country by all classes, from the domestic stock to the country gentry". IIRC. -- John Cowan You tollerday donsk? N.
