Subject: Future languages
Maybe something of interest for your discussion.
In the gold- and other minis of Johannesburg the people speak a sort of
Esperanto_ they call it FANAKALO.
There are so many nationalities working in the mines, so many languages
are spoken that the people developed a special, for everybody to understand,
I suppose, when people go back to their native land that some words will
remain. Can those than become part, lets say of Greek, English,... !?
Will it/ can it shape our future use of our native language !?
Don 't know mush about though, just something I wrote down in the case
it became handy...
