REVIEW #08 (covering the period from Mar 13 to Mar 26):
Because of Real Life (TM) this review covers two weeks

I put authors' names in square brackets, and projects names in figure ones.

A posteriori workshops:

"based on lgs of First Nations, Black Africa, Australian Aboriginals etc."
No activity since Feb 24.

"based on Celtic lgs"
[Habarakhe] announces: I have returned to the {Cunwy} language.

"based on East Asian lgs: CJK, Indochina, India (both Aryan and Dravidic),
Siberia, Pacific Ocean etc."
New member [Elyse Grasso] joins, [panchakahq] greets. [Benct Philip Jonsson]
asks for a Chinese name help.

"based on Germanic lgs"
German in FI conworld - is simple past more used there? (continued + more
concultural stuff). [Ju'] asks: Is there another way of creating the future
tense than the usual boring auxiliary routine?

"based on Proto-IndoEuropean"
No activity since Mar 03.

"based on Romance lgs"
Are there any Romance conlangs that are based on Classical Latin?

"based on Slavic, Baltic lgs or Greek"
New member [Charles] joins and describes his three para-Slavic projects.
Origin of /j/ phoneme in Slavic lgs.

"based on Uralic lgs"
No activity since Aug 25, 2004

"based on West Asian lgs: Semitic and other Afrasian, Turkic, North
Caucasian etc."
Mike is looking for a conlang based on a real-life Ancient Semitic natlang
(and I have no time to reply!)

- a Concreole workshop was found in two hypostasies: both on a private
server and on Yahoo. That confused people. They became silent in both
groups. Shall we have a poll wrt the group location?

Other specialized workshops:

- - conscripts:
{Floral} script [by B. Garcia] - (continued).
{PMF} - boring.
{Carsten}'s unnamed script - the same good impression as here.

- - League of the Lost Languages -
No activity since Feb 26.

- - conlangs in use:
No activity since Feb 11.

Sister groups:

No activity since Mar 01.

[Gregory H. Bontrager] presents {Brujeric}. [Xenophile] makes an interesting
translation into {Dramirsi}.

Groups in other languages:

- - in Spanish:
Stupid theories about Japanese related to IE langs. What languages are the
easiest? Usage of the word "alternativa" in Spanish. Usual paranoic chats
about anglophonic imperialism.

- - in French:
No activity since Jan 22.

- - in Russian:
A couple of interesting links.

Finally, a group in German is found here:
Greetings and some creative linguistics terminology discussions.

Enjoy your communication!
