> What is the difference between a hobby and an art form?
I would claim an "art form" is what you do, or what you produce. "Hobby"
refers to the seriousness of your participation in the activity. If
you're making a significant portion of your livelihood from it, for
example, I wouldn't call it a "hobby". And that doesn't mean that a
person can't be very serious about or very skilled at a hobby.
> Is it impossible to practice an art form as a hobby?
Absolutely not. The concepts are not opposites.
Oh, hi, all. Just popping in for a moment. Other art forms and also
natlang studies have been keeping me away from conlangs for the time
