>Once again, I will annoy you with my postings about things
that I don't know well enough to talk about...
Your posting was by no means annoying, at least to me. Except
for a couple of very minor points not worth mentioning, I fully
agree with your comments. I hope you understand that my
comments, to which you were responding, were intended only
- to attempt to give some kind of answer to Edward C's question
about how many of the world's languages already have writing
- to clarify that SIL does not have as an agenda to develop
writing systems for every one of the world's languages (we are
willing to assist any language community with such a desire,
within the limits of currently available resources, but we
can't decide that a language community *will* become literary).
