Rav Zarruvo is online!

    I think I have a good start at a basic vocabulary for my first conlang
now.  Most other basic words, I think, would be either borrowed from other
languages or built as compound words.  So I've gone ahead and posted a page
for my conlangs at the following URL:

    Right now Rav Zarruvo is the only language listed, and the only file
available is the PDF.  If I don't have to do too much editing I'll be
uploading the other seven files for Rav Zarruvo soon.
    Some people may have problems with the PDF; there are a lot of "special
characters" in there, and while PDF Writer *should* embed them properly it
doesn't always work that way in practice.  Let me know if you have this
problem and I'll try to correct it.
    Rav Zarruvo is not intended to be strange or experimental; it's
designed to be just alien enough that it should be challenging but not
immensely difficult to learn and speak.  I did put in some twists that some
may find unexpected, but it's all based on what the (fictional) home
culture would be like rather than any attempt to innovate.
    Most of all, I'd like evaluations of the orthography (which started to
wander from a European appearance to a Vietnamese one), checks for any
conflicting statements (which would indicate something that was changed in
one part of the document but missed in another), any points of glaring
unnaturalness, any areas of root words that I might have missed, and
suggestions for additional sound changes in the daughter languages.
    I look forward to your comments.
