    This is Khemehekis writing. I was googling for my screenname and saw your blog entry that says “This does not mean that it needs to have a dictionary of 23k words like Kankonian supposedly* has,” and “* I have no reason to doubt Khemehekis’ words but sheer incredulity. However, if the inventor reads this posting and takes offense, please provide evidence. Not because I am a paranoid and untrusting person, but because this seems to be an extraordinary claim, requiring extraordinary evidence.”

    I understand your concerns, and would like to verify that Kankonian does indeed have 23,000 (now 24,000) words. If you give me your email, I would like to send you the text of 19,000 Kankonian words with their English equivalents from my newkankonian.123 spreadsheet file. I can send it to you, but be warned, the email is going to be BIG. The other 5,000 words are already in the word-processing files of my Kankonian dictionary (most of them were up when I had the Kankonian site hosted by Prodigy).

    The file actually contains something more than 19,000 Kankonian words, because it also contains many English-Kankonian entries with additional English translations for words that are already in the word-processing files. For example, newkankonian.123 includes the entry “lad”, which is translated “bein”. I already have “bein” listed as “boy” in my word-processing file for Kankonian B-words, so that’s not really new. Another example is the Kankonian word “gilis”, which appears in my spreadsheet file as “article (of a constitution) and in the word-processing file for Kankonian G-words as “thing, object, item”.

    By the way, you misspell “Kankonian” as “Kankorian” in your tag.

    Over a week ago I responded to you at your gmx email with the entire contents of my newkankon.123 file. I haven’t heard back from you or seen updates on your webpage. What happened? I sure hope your computer didn’t “eat” my email to you because of its size.

      I planned a reply but then, I lost my current IRD as well as most stuff on Tsali and everything on Kenshuite He Mo Gie and it kinda… crashed me

        Oh no! That must really suck to lose a computer. Thank god that has never happened to me.

        So are you convinced Kankonian is the real thing?

        I did not lose the computer, ‘just’ the pendrive I had everything on. Kankonian… it is interesting and has me asking questions about the naturalness of it. i have to look at it again.
