E-Prime is a barely half-assed attempt at patching a language--and
indeed the very methods of thought behind it--that are hopelessly
broken. I am much more impressed with Lojban, which is at least a
3/4-assed attempt at throwing it out and starting over from a more
solid foundation. I have already found it useful for explaining
misunderstandings and hidden assumptions in English.
