Olivier Simon announced a few days ago that the Sambahsa - English dictionary is now complete, making English the second language after French to have a full dictionary. You can see it here on Scribd.
We've also been discussing the idea of a simple blog with news in Sambahsa, just a few sentences a day which would be enough to provide an incentive for people to check back daily. Olivier created a sample of news here which unfortunately has a very low volume but gives a good idea of what news in Sambahsa might sound like:
A more professional recording of something like this would sound great.
So let's look for some random words to see how complete this dictionary is.
amber - ginter. Also ambel for vine wood amber.
headphones - aurer
miner - ...has mine for mine, so probably the same as English.
feudal - no entry. Very likely the same though since it's feudal in both English and French.
scissors - nojitskand
