Sure, I agree; after all, I'm here even though I barely qualify as a conlang creator. But I fully agree with those who say that studying a conlang shouldn't be treated as equivalent, in terms of its overall benefit to one's education, as studying a natlang. E-o may qualify as a marginal exception; after all, it's also a marginal example of a natlang, given the small number of native (bilingual) speakers. -- John Cowan Please leave your values | Check your assumptions.
