Suggestion for new boilerplate, 24 October 03: On every article whose title is one of the 850 Basic English words we add a header:

This is a Basic English word.

-- I assume users will often find this kind of marker helpful --

Well it depends on your view about "Basic English". It is only one scheme of simplifiying the language. I don't think we ought be promoting this list above any other. Angela

Ok, maybe I don't understand well how Basic English is used in ESL classes. I thought that it was used as a standard set and that many teachers and students would find it relevent. If it is not used very much or considered very important, then I agree we have no need to emphasize it in Simple English Wikipedia. --

I don't know whether it is in America but I've never seen that particular list used in England. Angela
