> 1) How did you get in to conlanging? What was your inspiration?
I've had a personal fascination with languages and communication since the age of 8 - an oddity in a household that was, at best, monlingual.

First, it is a pasttime for my own entertainment. Second, I do it for personal experiments with regards to limits of communication and language variation.
> 3) How have people reacted when you tell them about it?
True friends already know I'm a geek long before I mention conlanging.
> 4) Did conlanging lead you places you never expected it to > take you?
It lead me into teaching ESL - English as a Second Language.
