Katy was poring over the isosikerian charts, her headphones blasting music
of the worst kind in terms of quality. The repeating beat was not even
perceived anymore but did a good job in keeping the noises of the ship out.
There is nothing as important as silence when working on a new hyperspace
jump. The calculations are difficult enough that modern computers cannot
reach a satisfying result in acceptable time. The interaction of a
hyperspace navigator with the program in order to prioritize is often the

--## If someone from a different time would see the modern world, s/he would be quite confused. Our mice don't squeak, our keyboards don't play music or hold keys, except of course for the ones which do not open doors. And don't get me started on joysticks... When new concepts arrive in the world they do not arrive with new words already attached, instead, words are repurposed, re-repurposed and re-re-repurposed for the new concepts. This presentation aims to show how the process happened in rejistanian but you are encouraged to use its structures in your own languages and projects.

You stand in the Kennedy Street and look at the large house, more a villa
than a house, and wonder whether it is a good idea to just ring the doorbell
and ask for Mira. The large, huge manison is awe-inspiring, but for the
family inside it, it is surprisingly understated. The family inside it is so

short introduction on rejistanian grammar
View rejistanianintro.txt
Rejistanian is designed to be the auxilliary language of the fictional
nation of Rejistania. Thus the grammar is simple, but this does not mean
that the language poses no challenges or insights to the learner. It is not
a simple re-work of Esperanto.
Lines which start with a | are out of character notes from Mechthild.
Pronouncing Rejistanian:
There is no definite pronunciation of Rejistanian, the Academy of the
