 All this on a "Natural Semantic Metalanguage" seems quite'airy' to me -- that
is without much substance. Very littlenew here IMO but the hype. The "prime
concepts" hardly go beyond the table of correlatives in Esperanto or what one
might find in similar descriptions of various natlangs. Can't say that
something new and valuable may come fronmthis, but I would not guarantee that
it will. Some peoplestill use Roget as a semantic structure, as weak as it
is!Someone should do a better job. Let's hope so.Regards, Leo J. MoserSent On Wed 11/14, Mr Veoler &lt; veoler@GMAIL.COM &gt;
