Globish

        язык Cesky

Globish is a reduced English with a lexicon of 1500 words. It is proposed by Jean-Paul Nerrière and Francophones can learn more at http://www.jpn-globish.com/ It is said to be sufficient to say anything you need and as a guide to using English as a second language most people can understand each other with it. This constraint is more strain than con in specialisms like Folk or Techie.
