I like that idea a lot. Is Lucus a ConLang? More info, more please... Being a Glosa* "outcast", I still like the Greek roots in much of the international techno-scientific culture. The Greek roots _seem_ to have a certain simple, integral "hardiness" that the Romance roots seemingly lack. In almost any (written [Roman alphabet]) language where the international techno-Greco roots are used, one can readibly recognize them. Makes one wonder what that may imply for a Greco language group? and for an Euro-civilization more Greco than Roman? Anyone know more about the country in South East Asia - I think it's Thailand, but I am not certain - that holds contests to see who can come up with the best Sanskrit equivalents for techno-scientific words???
