As far as length goes, "ALF" is much shorter than "anadew(ism)". And "Andreas's Law of Freaks" is abit shorter than "A Natlang's Already Dunnit Even Worse" too. So how is it more concise? To me "anadewism" sounds more like some semifictional brand of Marxism-Leninism, along the lines of Trotskism or Zinovievism. Funny what different associations people make. Andreas
