So why not here? 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. A j, t vu,s c yr opo je d w, n sol stu ab l lin d ot, b yr opo w reef wi lin d vot & stu t su. To me, it seems, this would help each of us, not only learn about the languages of others, but would help us practice our language of choice and learn it better. J h e civib fa c m mote, zi j y n cer qa t yvo e ce by l ro. 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?
