I agree. Some I know of:yasmin-kasumi wrote:Linguistic gender equality is good and important and seeing that most are behind it, its at the top of the list, but what about antonym reform? I love esperanto, I hate the gender inequality but I'm no where near alone with reforming it (at least to the point that our reforms wont be labeled esperantido), but I am bugged so much by seeing mal- everywhere just pisses me off. Mahela, malgranda, it's just linguistically lazy as hell!!! Is anyone besides poets up for doing some more coinages???
small is eta, not malgranda
left is liva, not maldekstra
bad is mava, not malbona
sad is trista, not malfeliĉa
dark is darka, not malhela
I don't know how well-accepted these are, but I them very useful.
