I agree the discussion on constrained language should be revived. We should add it to the solutions section.

All the best

thanks for this. 
I'd really like this 'conversation' to be revived. 
The changes in technology and the way we interact have changed and I 
think there is a really good case to be made for a constrained 
language and I think it can be handled in a relatively practical way 
these days. I am keen for a solution that is like a curb cut - good 
for everyone, especially helpful for those with a disability that can 
be avoided.

&gt; I actually built it using word net and used it to aid automated

&gt; I am not sure how to talk about what interests me in our task context 
&gt; - the idea of having a constrained language so that we have a more 
&gt; accurate and fast way of pivoting from one language to another, be 
&gt; they different like sign language and icons or helpful to people with 
&gt; reading and speech problems caused by cognitive disabilities? I would 
&gt; quite like to be able to write something on the wiki and see what 
&gt; people think about it... 
&gt; This is an area I want to research ... 
&gt; but don't think I can write on the wiki and am not sure where to write 
&gt; it anyway...
