      Okay, ig vill oversette om ig shrive net op english.
      Okay, I'll translate if I don't write in English.

      Ig have enige vorden beginnende med de bokstav 'd' dat ig findede
      gesternaht, aver dis rekenmashin kunn net lese de disk. Todag vill
      ig beginne op en ander bokstav, sokende de core 1 vordshatt. Ig
      latte de vokalen for nu, darfor dei ar lite sverer to finde. Om de
      formen av de vorden ar net rihtig, oder it geve bettere formen, vi
      kunn forandre dem. Ig makde de folksprak form fron de tre core
      spraken ute 'input' fron de andere germanishe spraken. Aver vi kunn
      forbettre dem after vi have findet dem. Ig must finde en lagdutsh ok
      en frisish vordbok.

      I have some words beginning with the letter 'd' that I found last
      night, but this computer can't read the disk. Today, I will begin on
      another letter, looking for the core 1 vocabulary. I am leaving the
      vowels for now, because they are a little harder to find. If the
      forms of the words aren't right, or there are better forms, we can
      change them. I made the Folksprak form from the three core languages
      without input from the other Germanic languages. But we can improve
      them after we have found them. I need to find a low-German and a
      Frisian dictionary.

      Lang lev Folksprak!
      Hertligste gryten,
      Erik

        Oh, I get it.

        With a little help from my dictionary I gathered that you were showing me
        your word list and some things about selection, as well as phonetic
        questions.

        I think we should get rid of "c" since "k" usually represents the /k/ sound
        and "s" can represent /s/. "C" is not usually used in Germanic languages
        anyway. Thus, what is "ck" in Swedish should be "kk" in Folksprak, as it
        often is in German.

        We should usually look to Scandinavian for the "th" problem, as it is almost
        always "d" in German and "th" in English. Sometimes it would be more
        understandable to go with "t" as in the word for three, but other times, "d"
        will be better.

        Nathaniel
