FINAL QUESTION: your natlangs. Sorry this is the last of the survey...

This should have been on the survey as well.  Mea maxima culpa... I don't
mean to tax your patience.  But an obvious question to ask is whether
your interest in inventing languages has some congruence with your
learning or having learned another natural language.  As for me, I went
into languages because of a secret need to fuel the invention engine for
Teonaht.  Other people may have gone into conlanging because they are
bilingual.  Mia's remark stirred my curiosity as well.  How many of you
conlangers know other languages, and what is the extent of that knowledge?
