3 Requests

From:Jim Grossmann <steven@...>

Long long ago, when this list was still young, conlang text samples & their
translations weren't always presented in interlinear fashion.

Now, thanks to the march of progress, a lot of listers are presenting their
conlang text samples & translations in interlinear format.

Even so, I don't always understand the abbreviations.   One lister was kind
enough to give me a list of abbreviations along with his conlang web site.

But what if everybody included a legend of their abbreviations each time
they post an interlinear conlang text samples & translations in interlinear
format (along with regular format so we can see what the language is
supposed to look like)?

Well, that's my first request, or hope.

Also, I would like to revise my conlang sample on the "If you call me insane
again ...etc." page.
In Goesk, "crazy" has gone from "xed" to "fruzoexte," and the matrix clause
doesn't have "-ai" subjunctive anymore.   How do I make the revision?

For my last request, I'd like to find someplace on the web where I can find
out how to pronounce certain Latin words.

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.

Jim G.
