Kaltxì ma frapo! We received an update from Karyu Pawl today regarding a slang methodology that we're excited to share with you. The initial question concerned whether or not the common phrase ke omum, I don't know, could be slanged as komum. Pawl's response was enthusiastic.
He went on to explain that there are many parallels in English, highlighting the etymology of the word "gonna" to explain how a similar process of elision happens naturally in fast speech.
His response closed with an encouragement to the community to be creative and to allow slang words to develop naturally.
