I'd defend you tood and nail over at the auxlang list my friend Irina.

Hey, I've been on Conlang for years. And I've done my best to
support the conlang list.

They are beautiful, Irina. That is my opinion, I was talking about
quantity not quality.

Frankly whether an auxlang would ever... I seriously doubt it!
My interest in auxlangs is the same as con/artlangs.
>trouble people take to make me ashamed either of making it up,

inarguable artlang quality about them...
Solresol cant be denied... who of us would
ever come up with such... brilliant I say!
Volapuk is neat stuff when it comes to its

Esperanto's hatted letters are just as pretty

history of conlanging... Tolkien should also have
