I am VERY grateful for the information, and encourage everyone to send in
their comments, criticisms, additions and synonyms for the list of unicycle
terms I posted.
One day, when we have our headquarters in Geneva and IUF excutives have personal
helicopters :-), we will have a Multilingual Dictionary of Unicycling
Terminology in English, Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Japanese and
eventually other languages like Hebrew and, for the heck of it, Yiddish.
WHO will volunteer to be my assistant editors and lexicographers? Fortunately, I
am a lexciographer by profession; unfortunately, my dictonary-making skills are
on a higher level than my unicycling skills :-). So I am in a position to do the
job but need help.
So here is a tentative poropsal for the Compilation Team.
MULTILINGUAL DICTIONARY OF UNICYCLING TERMINOLOGY
- Editor in Chief Jack Halpern
- Japanese Editor Jack Halpern
- Chinese Editor Li Zhao
- Chinese Assistant Editor Jack Halpern
- Spanish Editor Alberto Ruiz
- Spanish Assitant Editors Boni & Caroli
- German Editor Michael Kirsh
- German Assistant Editor Rolf Sander
- Hebrew Editor Jack Halpern
- Yiddish Editor Jack Halpern
- English Editor John Foss
- English Assistant Editor Jack Halpern
- English Consultants Craig Rogers, Ken Fuchs,Tim Sheppard
- French Editor Normand Beaumont
So I say let’s get a team together. Anybody can be a consultant and you don’t
have to do much. Just make comments, additions or whatever, and you name will
forever in the annals of unicycling history
I would appreciate if the people named would respond or suggest someone
else. I see it as my mission to coordinate thois project and make this
dictionary a reality.
Stay on top, Jack Halpern IUF Vice President
