POLARI: HOW SOCIAL OPPRESSION LED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GAY LANGUAGE
The Folkspraak Institute needs your help!
In order to begin work on a projected FSp chrestomathy, an augmented wordstock is urgently needed.
The FSp vocabulary built to date is insufficiently broad to begin the building of a literature.
It is felt that if - in addition to the already existing words - FSp words were created for each of the 850 words in Ogden's "Basic English" list, work on a chrestomathy could begin in earnest.
Please click below to access the listing of Ogden's "Basic English" wordstock and to help devise needed words.  As you can see, some have already been completed (these are only suggestions subject to correction and amendment by the Folkspraakskommunitie.

Many thanks for your kindness and interest!
