 Hey! I remember that post! Now I just feel older than dirt.
 Ok, it was only 1996, but I've had two more children since then, so it
 SEEMS like it has been ages...

I have no child yet but still it seems ages ago to me too. I remember that=20
thread quite well. It made me develop a syntactic deictic (to refer to=20
former, next clauses and arguments). It's interesting good to see that the=20
same topics keep being discussed by younger conlangers. It makes me think=20
that there are "universal" conlanging issues. But is there any conlanging=20
progress ?
