I missed and cannot seem to find the post which listed the goals of Tong-cho-la, but regardless, the question this raises is how universally user friendly this language is intended to be. Will it require the learner to be able to differentiate between [yo-so-ni] and [] or [yo s:o n:i]? Some natural languages (e.g. Finnish, Italian) have some long consonants, but they are difficult for native speakers of English (or, I'd guess, Spanish) to differentiate immediately. I, personally, like long & short consonants, just as I like agglutinating languages _________________________________________________________________ Help STOP SPAM with the new MSN 8 and get 2 months FREE*
