You are as enigmatic as ever. If I posted in Gaelic only, then you
and the other Gaelic stalwarts could have a good laugh; but I don't
pretend to command Gaelic. I don't feel that I have to speak an
endangered language to champion the cause. And I do believe that the
majority of endangered languages that survive will do so because of
bilingualism in majority languages. If this is a problem on a list
that we decided at the beginning would be conducted in English, then
you will have to explain why.
