... which is why I found it so comforting to find Conlang in '96 when I got online: "Wow, so many conlangers!" You don't feel quite so weird when you're surrounded by equally-weird (or at least, weird for the same reason) people. Just recently Jameld has gained a fresh audience among a new circle of friends I've found... friends-of-friends can become friends, sometimes... They're mostly quite a bit younger than me, and their response to Jameld's existence, and that I actually "made it up" myself, is interest, mild amusement and (in some cases) "Cool!" None of them have actually expressed horror or revulsion, anyway. My new Jameld Microphrasebook - everything vital, all on one double-sided A4 sheet folded into a minimally thin booklet - is going to come in very useful. The number of messages I get on my phone in Jameld is just about to go up dramatically, I hope. :) James ========================================================================= James Campbell Zeugma--Our Life Is Design Sponsored by -- for all your household blithery requirements =========================================================================
