  1. Closures My following two discussion groups are closed in September 2005. globish-english@yahoogroups.com and marathi-romanscript@yahoogroups.com My earlier following two websites are closed. (Contents were transferred to this website in December 2004) http://education.vsnl.com/mngogate and http://balasainet.com/mngogate
  2. Sounds and their frequencies vary from language to language. Choose Roman symbols to suit respective needs. Do not adopt an over-precise script which is complex and burdensome.
  3. Latin Script (Roman script) can be used for Marathi. Refer articles E03,   E15,   M12 ,  M21,   M22 in (www.mngogate.com)
  4. Hindi and Marathi are written in (almost common) Devanagari script. Many words are common. Hindi-knowers, unfamiliar with Marathi, can judge say 50 % sense of Marathi text, in Devanagari or Roman. Science is known as vigyaan in Hindi, vidnyaan in Marathi.
  5. Globish (by M N Gogate, since 1998) is parallel English with revised spellings. It differs from a subsequent proposal (having same name) by another author, based on the current spellings. See articles E01, E02. Apply technique suggested for Sister Languages to English. Briefly, Use a-z to respell words. Use capitals A-Z to start unrespelled words. Use triple dots.
  6. Request Please circulate this website and send comments. Thanks.
