Language-geek fun
Slovio (more)
Mark Hucko has come up with a modern answer to Slavonic, like Esperanto and other attempts at an artificial second language. Like lingua franca (Latin-based; pidgin Italian?) naturally was in the mediæval Mediterranean, this is a simplified/pidgin Slavic language for Eastern Europe and Asian Russia. I can understand it! Like Esperanto, etc., probably unnecessary as, thanks to the British Empire and its American continuation, English is now the world language/the common second language but a lot of fun.
