Until I found Conlang in '96, I never even knew that JRRT created langs,
although of course I knew of the books' existence, being at that time a
Marillion fan; plus, I had been exposed to The Hobbit at primary school -
i.e. it was read to us.
For the first 14 years of my conlanging (and I can't even remember what I
used to call my hobby before I heard that term - I think I just used to
invent languages), the only conlangers I knew of were LL Zamenhof and that
guy who devised Ro.
