I must admit, I really, really, really, really, really, really HATE the
shortening of words and phrases, e.g.: conlang, auxlang, AFAIK, etc. It
drives me crazy. If you'll notice, I've never used any such shortenings in
any of my e-mails. But it's not just confined to this list. I hate it when
people say cogsci when the mean cognitive science; see ess when they mean
computer science; polisci when they mean political science; bio when they
mean biology; addy when they mean address; peep when they mean people, etc.,
etc. It drives me nuts. I like the words as they are. They're happy words.
They don't like to be chopped in half or diced up or condensed. Anyway,
that is the end of the segment: I HAVE AN OPINION!
