Has anybody here on the list ever heard of folkspraak? anybody here
besides me involved with it?
Basically its a committee creating a pan-germanic. Its all being done
online too. and,,, we're experiencing a modicum of success.
The secret to our success was allowing every participant to have his/her
own form of the language. Since we're all using the same tecnique to
create words and gramatical features and, the source languages are
always the same, we figured how far off could someone go? This saved us
from crashing and burning.
