'It is hard to imagine us inventing a new co-ordinating conjunction, for example, or a new personal pronoun.'

Actually, people have been trying to invent new personal pronoun for quite a few years now, mostly in order to have gender-neutral ones. The poor success of these outside of minority groups only goes to show how hard it is to add words to a closed set! -- JoachimNoreiko 12:43, 15 March 2007 (GMT)

Insert "successfully" etc - now done. PeterWilson 07:40, 18 March 2007 (GMT)
