Actually sort of a post-conSpanish ;) Just a few minor changes: loss of syllable-final 's' [replaced by circumflex in roots, but retained spelled silently in inflections--'eius' is /EjU/], loss of final vowels, simplification of some vowels, a little more phonetic spelling and whatever grammar is necessary to the situation :p Me yam Muke, y me gût êtuyar la lingüîtic! Or, more babeliciously: El mund enter er de un lengo y las mîmas palabras.

I think that's decently correct [Not sure either though, but that's the example I almost used.] *Muke! --
