::dons horns and tail, plays with pitchfork...playing the Devil's Advocate on behalf of auxlanging:: Not always. Many current, reasonable-thinking auxlangers realize that any Auxlang's best hope for acceptance - even limited acceptance - is best represented as an "auxiliary"- L2 or L3... hence the older term "universal" or "world" language has fallen into both disrepute and disuse.

A far more insidious linguistic threat is, of course, the spread of "Globalist Pop Culture English" ;P Hanuman Zhang "the sloth is a chinese poet upsidedown" --- jack kerouac {1922-69} -------------------------------------------------- "There is no reason for the poet to be limited to words, and in fact the poet is most poetic when inventing languages. Hence the concept of the poet as 'language designer'." - O. B. Hardison, Jr. "La poésie date d' aujour d'hui." (Poetry dates from today) "La poésie est en jeu." (Poetry is in play) - Blaise Cendrars "To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism, to steal ideas from many is research." -Anonymous
