    Is this language written with the Latin alphabet? I can't remember the name of it, and a quick internet search didn't turn up anything, but perhaps you're aware of a prior attempt at simplifying Japanese? I've never been able to find any info on it (beyond the name, which I've forgotten), but perhaps you already know more. My understanding is that, strictly speaking, Japanese is a 'pitch' rather than 'tonal' language. Furthermore, Japanese prosody is actually pretty consistent. Yet you have it here listed as having a 'complex tone system'. How do you figure? Also, the open CV syllable structure of Japanese is surely not 'complex'. Right? Almost comparable to Hawaiian! Will you have a website where we can learn more? I think that a simplified Japanese is a great idea, and I would like to see more of your language.
