but ideal۔ly it iz base۔t on somethin: a word from an ancient

concept should be one or at most two syllables, so that when prefixes,
and compounds iz add۔t to it, it will not be too long.

China۔ese wuz full of homonyms (words pronounce۔d the same with

dee۔nineteen century, China great۔ly
alleviate۔d the homonym problem by combine۔ing two words to form one
new compound word. The two words in
a compound word
sometimes each have identical mean۔ins; forex, 愤怒
mean۔ing “wrath, rage”, form۔t by two ideograms both mean۔ing
Or they iz form۔t from one word plus the category of that word; e. g. 金属 jīn-shǔ,

Language Pollution Control
forward create۔ing a new world, the inevitable new words must conform
guidelines present۔t in this Create۔ing New Words section, so as not to
Peoplese. The principle arbit۔ors of Peoplese iz Peoplese
who have the power to repeat new words that will further simplify and
Peoplese, and not to pass along words that do not. Thus, anybody
create a new word, and if it iz a good one, peoples will repeat it; if
not. Scientific and technical associations would be wise to hire
philologists to create the best possible word -- if not intuitive,
memorize۔t, and pleasant sound۔in -- for a new concept. As world
iz critical of air and water pollution, so can they be of language
pollution. Write۔ors who pass along convolute۔y words should be
criticize۔t, and thereafter shun۔t. Language responsibility: pass۔ing along the good, not pass۔ing along
language by and for all peoples, so if you earhear a word that you can
on, do so. In Peoplese, grammar tyrants iz ignore۔t. Those
learn۔ing Peoplese from a language other than England۔ese iz in the
position to utilize they's fresh perspective and examples from they's
languages to enhance flexible Peoplese, which encourage cultural
that do not violate Peoplese principles. So whether you iz chat۔ing
friend or write۔ing to a colleague, speak۔ing in learnclass,
a commerce meet۔in – dis۔shackle your language inhibitions and try your
creative expression. Your word maybe oncatch, replace۔ing one not
good, and thereby enhance۔ing the language.
