Outdoor days

From the start of tomorrow, our family will have time in Akaigawa. It is fixed for us to have outdoor sleep there.

It is natural for me these days to be reading Ryota-san's words through Twitter. My old grip of Basic English was that it's hard to give thoughts and ideas inside of the Twitter's limit of small word's number. But his quite edged arts of Basic words on it make my mind get changed completely. 

If readers of my Blog are user of Twitter, to do "follow" after him will become very good fruits for their brain.

British or American?

C.K.Ogden, who was the producer of Basic English, was from Great Britain. That would be one of why some of words in Basic English was lettered in British way.
Today the words are right to be taken place by American way.The reason is not because American but because the letterings have harmony with sounds. The words Ryota-san put like "behaviour," "colour," "grey," "harbour," "humour" and "plough" are, in their lettering, not are not simple and are against sounds a bit.

I put my opinion about the Basic word 'humor'. *1, *2
Ryota-san kindly gave his opinion on this question from a wider view.
His opinion is clear for me. Even we say "good humor" or "bad humor", though we are not conscious, the wordings are based on it's root sense "condition of mind". It would be wiser for us to have a grip a of root sense of the word anytime.

My writing "What humor do you have today?" seems to be wrong. How about "How is your humor today?" ?

Learning in bath room

I got an interesting book. This book is not about Basic English but about full English.
But we are able to be reading in a bath room! The book is made of special paper which is against water.
I have been reading it a number of times.

Book on Basic English - Basic English International Second Language

I am surprised that we are able to be reading "Basic English International Second Language" online. I got the book through a sea last year. The price was very high. I had to give an order because it was the last one copy in the online store.
By the way, in this book, a word *televsion* is coming out. This word is not in the list of Basic 850 words and the list of International word.
Now I am interested in a new International Words. *Television* is one of my list of the test words. I have a thought that we may be right of giving a thought in simpler way than my earlier thought.
