I've just been adding to
some material on conlang terminology that seems too subjective,
perhaps, to be suitable for Wikipedia. Take a look and see if there
are other terms in common use I haven't covered, or if you think my
definitions of the terms don't match the way you use the terms /
hear them used, or add link references to CONLANG list messages
or other sources about when and how these terms were coined.
