is a project of artificial international auxiliary language of worldlang type.

The main idea is – to use coincidental similarity between words of different languages of the world with the same meaning but without common etymological origin. Such similarity may be in two consonants in the same order, which is the most frequent case. Cases may differ. Words with such a property is included to the lexicon. Words having more users are preferred. In majority, the words are found in the most spoken languages, but the number of source languages is not limited, some words are found in languages having less speakers.
