In Kaos Babul Ingaliz (NOTE: lexicon is still tentative): Yu sapoz bon fasin bin karree lah yu maihap bi wan movee-stah chow-chow. You/suppose/good/fashion/[PTPart.]/curry/[*]/ you/mayhaps/be/one/movie-star/meal. [PTPart.] ===> Past Tense Particle [*] ===> grammatical particle "Kaos Babul Ingaliz's innovative character, not to say multilingual virtuosity, has given Kaos Babul the aura of 'ultra-cool' raciness and rebelliousness, and with this, the advantages of a 'slanguage' that _can be_ almost totally opaque to potentially hostile outsiders and authorities." - from "Kaos Babul Ingaliz: From Street Lingo Fracas to XenoCultural Lingua Franca," _Chop-Chop Wan Muta Mix/Work That Mutant Mix: Global XenoCulture 2020_ ___________________________________________ "One thing foreigners, computers, and poets have in common is that they make unexpected linguistic associations." - Jasia Reichardt ________________________________________ In a message dated 10.08.2001 05:38:07 AM, Sylvia Sotomayor (kelen@IX.NETCOM.COM) continues to write:
