(This is the bilingual text of the Ygyde message I posted earlier, cf. my
last posting on Ygyde, sent moments ago.)

I come to the conlang list with a question: Is Ygyde plausible?
It is proposed by its creator to be an auxlang, but so far it has had little
success. If it is ever to become an auxlang, it must be accepted by a
substantial portion of the world's population. What about Ygyde would
promote that? The only thing I see in its favor is that it's easy to make
up new words.
But against it, I see several factors. First, it is hard to figure out what
exactly was meant by someone using a particular word. The sounds of Ygyde
would be very difficult for most people in the world. And the grammar is
But this is only my opinion. What matters is the opinion of the common man.
If people are not willing to learn it, for whatever reason - no matter how
petty -it will never become what its creators intended it to be.
What do the makers of this language think?
