    • I invented this word to translate "technology", then discovered that nitcion had already used it to translate "engineering".

I am not on any of the mailing lists, because I carelessly read yahoo's "privacy" policy first. .i u'e mi bebna But I check the web archives regularly.

I largely agree with Jay Kominek about Lojban policy.

  • Long live the baseline.
  • Tinkering with the language tends to damage the community. Even arguing about tinkering with the language is bad. Seeing the debates nearly drove me away before I'd even finished learning the gismu.
  • I ignore experimental words and proposed changes in meaning or place structure, and discussions of them.
    • Experimental cmavo are officially part of the language. Do you ignore all of them too?
      • jezrax:
        • Calling them a part of the language is arguable. A portion of cmavo space is set aside for them. Nothing is defined in it. You can say that experimental cmavo are a part of the language, but can you say xa'o is officially part of the language (truthfully)?
          • .kreig.daniyl.:
            • No. However, certain experimental cmavo and other unofficial constructs are used, and thus (tavlykai that I am) I would call them part of the language as it is actually spoken. For example, ka'enai is definitely part of the language - even though the book thinks otherwise.
          • How many people have to start using and understanding xa'o before you'll consider it part of the language? Now, ka'enai is a good example of the actual language diverging from the baseline.
      • jezrax:
        Yes, I ignore them. I don't know any of them or feel a need to. I haven't found anything I want to say that seems to call for additional cmavo.
  • Bob LeChevalier is usually correct.
