Well, auxlangs are "auxiliary" in that they are intended as a world-wide *second language*. Unfortunately, not all auxlangers share that intention. In fact, the following web page appears to indicate that auxlanging might indeed be what angers Ms Gunn. Check out the link about "linguistic rights"... I think she sees in auxlanging the colonialistic desire to suppress native minority languages. -- Christian Thalmann
