There's an interesting idea.

Wow. That's impressive, whether it'd be a good learning tool or not.
Arbitrary restrictions (especially those unsupported by notions such as readability) are not helpful in the transmission of information.
The four letter words or less idea makes this kind of a puzzle to read. It really forces you to picture what it describes, because it makes no sense if you don't.
O.K., so I'll read it slowly this time...
Unfortunately, the words overlapped too often for me to have a firm grasp on the ideas that were being explained. I mean, even a little "uniform motion" would have made it a lot easier to stand and understand.
One of those pages that I wish I liked. Nicknames were a nice touch, though.
Good idea, but the "four words or less" principle makes it a chore to read, as most words and phrases are recycled over and over again. A explanation with a more complex and varied vocabulary would help.

So, have a seat. Put your feet up. This may take some time. Can I get you some tea? Earl Grey? You got it.
Okay. How do I want to do this? He did so much. It's hard to just dive in. You know? You pick a spot to go from, but soon you have to back up and and go over this or that item, and you get done with that only to see that you have to back up some more. So if you feel like I'm off to the side of the tale half the time, well, this is why. Just bear with me, and we'll get to the end in good time. Okay?
Okay. Let's see....

Say you woke up one day and your bed was gone. Your room, too. Gone. It's all gone. You wake up in an inky void. Not even a star. Okay, yes, it's a dumb idea, but just go with it. Now say you want to know if you move or not. Are you held fast in one spot? Or do you, say, list off to the left some? What I want to ask you is: Can you find out? Hell no. You can see that, sure. You don't need me to tell you. To move, you have to move to or away from ... well, from what? You'd have to say that you don't even get to use a word like "move" when you are the only body in that void. Sure. Okay. "
Izzy, Ari and old Al make me feel dizzy!
Feels kind of condescending: 4 letters max, written like a tea-party conversation... It's a fair explanation, but using just simple in stead of insanely short words would make the text much less annoying...
this one is quite impressing
this makes it more confusing to limit yourself to 4 letters. The text is so round-about and twisted just to avoid the easiest words that the subject is nigh incomprehensible. you cannot even use the word light!
Wall of text... and a simpleton's explanation. I guess not all people understand words of more than 4 letters? Are you being condescending? Fuck off.
what would i do without andy?
Cute, but why?? Then again, strange things become amusing in labs late at night - like relativity in words of few letters, and the indices of texts written by authors with a sense of humor (equations, uninterrupted page of ... p. xx).
Try "Mr.Tompkins Explains..." books for an easier to understand description.
The four letter words or less description is a little hard to read - maybe the rhythm of the description gets too monotonous? I kept losing my place.
Izzy... hahaha. This is classy.
