    Hi all,

    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...
