Which is, incidently, one of the reasons I dislike many auxlangs. Esperanto is the only one I know of with a lot of room for coining and and with a supply of synonyms. That's not meant to imply that there aren't others -- if there are, I want to hear about them. Also, in the above post, I didn't mean any sort of disdain of Hebrew at all. I actually think Hebrew is one of the most beautiful languages on Earth. --Pat
