A couple things: this is definitely not the choice of limited vocabulary I'd probably go with myself for a project attempting to simplify verbage for understandability. But it's interesting to work within.

Also, I made an effort not to oversimplify my syntax which is something I've seen a lot of upgoerfive do -- it's a stylistic choice, maybe, but I think a lot of people are making it unconsciously. And I think it contributes to a sense of condescension, at least to native speakers; it feels like you're being talked to as a small child. Which, I'll be honest, I didn't like that much when I was a small child myself.

Additionally, I defined a few words that aren't in the editor; I didn't use them to further define any other words. I think it's valid because how else do you introduce anyone to expanded vocabulary? But YMMV on that one.

So all that said: an upgoerfive text talking about my work )

It's always really incredibly depressing how excited people with Spanish-derived names get when I pronounce their names correctly. Like, seriously, just out and out excited.

Seriously, Spanish pronunciation is pretty easy. This should not be remarkable. >_>

(And this would be why when we don't have any Spanish speakers available to help us check in Spanish speakers who aren't ESL, I'm the one with my sad and pathetic Spanish, and Google Translate, who manages to stumble through the check-in process.)
