It may please you to know that the Elfling mailing list, devoted to Tolkien's languages, has received a flood of new participitants since mid-december, all eager to learn Elvish. A few of them as even expressed their wish to create their own language (and some may even be with us in this moment, since I suggested that they join CONLANG).
