J h jip oze ypue qy w o c ro n ri me i wi lin d vot.
 I have myself often wondered why we on this list do not write more
in our language of choice.

 of us, not only learn about the languages of others, but would help
us practice our language of choice and learn it better.

I have been hesitant to do this with speedwords, because I was not
 sure how it would be received by the list.

 Qd v pu?
 What do you think?
