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???
