big."Well, I have a language with a syllabary still in the design stages
(havinggone through several that I later abandoned as too hard to read, too
hard towrite, or just plain u!
gly), and I find I get along very well withoutcapitals at all. In fact, I
don't even use them in the romanization. Noteven to start a sentence.""But I'm
odd like that. Mia." Not very odd, IMO, in this case at least. :-) A marker is
easily used to prefix any letter that might otherwise becapitalized. In re
natlangs and e-mail communication etc., this would liberate a great deal of
keyboard space. But would it be faster? I don't know. Regards LEO Leo J. Moser
