I am particularly interested in compiling a list of definitions
of the terms "Controlled Language" and "Sub-language". Since there
are potentially different interpretations of these terms, I invite replies
from people of different fields of interest.

I would appreciate your replies on how you would
define these terms.

Please send replies to me directly at <>

A summary of responses will be posted later.

Thanks in advance.
