Sousic is a practical artistic language primarily designed for ease of reading. So it's an artlang not an auxlang but it's a practical one intended to be reasonably easy to use. I call it a litlang, a language primarily designed for accessible literary use.
Here's what it looks like:
The three primary source languages for Sousic vocabulary are French, English and Arabic. Lugha is the Arabic word for language. The core of Sousic vocabulary is comprised of words shared by English and French, such as practical and Literatur.
Although many of the words of Sousic look identical to or similar to English, French or Arabic words, the rules of Sousic pronunciation are entirely regular. Therefore once the rules of pronunciation have been learned it is easy to read texts either silently or aloud. The Latin alphabet is used without diacritics, so the language is easy to type on any device. Stress falls lightly upon the final syllable of all words except those containing the long Arabic vowels aa, ii or uu. Much of the rich vocabulary of English, French and Arabic is available by virtue of a sophisticated orthography designed primarily for optimal ease of reading (not maximal ease of writing). Above all, Sousic is not a competitor of Esperanto, Interlingua or other auxlangs. Sousic is an artistic project. Sousic is designed for literary use not for active conversational use. Sousic is a language for readers.
Here's another example:

Note that nouns begin with an upper-case letter and proper nouns are written in italics. Regular verbs are not conjugated. Tense is often indicated by adverbs or context. There is only one irregular verb in the language (the verb for 'to be'). Nouns are never declined, not even for the plural; nouns are generally considered to be intrinsically singular unless indicated otherwise by the presence of other indicator words (such as in the above example the plural determiner dhas which means 'those'). The language contains definite and indefinite articles but their use is optional. Adjectives are never declined. Adjectives can be used as adverbs without any change in spelling.
Sousic has been in serious development since mid-2012. Now in January 2013 it has been simplified, making it powerfully easier to use. It no longer has the complicated and difficult features which it originally possessed early in its development (for example as mentioned in my comment to the previous post ...and the journey ends dated 11 June 2012 16:33). However at this early stage of its development it only has a tiny vocabulary. Writers interested in using the language should wait a few months until the language has stabilised and better documentation becomes available.
