I know, I promised to write a letter to Dr. Gunn about the weird things she
wrote about conlangers. But on Friday I couldn't find time for it. And in the
weekend I started to have some second thoughts about the matter. As a result, I
decided the whole thing is not really worth so many hours of my precious time,
and dedicated them to our conspiration instead.
Thus, Hattic and Askaic both grew to about 1,300 words. Not bad, eh?
Secondly, I was never really happy with the name "Hattic languages" for Hattic,
Askaic and a few other I had in scope. My contribution to our conspirational
quarterly "Language Creation" prompted me to take some quick decisions, since I
had already crossed the deadline. So I decided to abolish the name "Hattic"
(for the family, not for the language), replacing it by "Khadurian".
And last but not least, I started working on a new language. It will be a
member of the Khadurian family, too, and its name is "Megza" ("Megan" in
All I can say, is that I am satisfied.
I most certainly hope to become Minister of Culture in the rapidly approaching
Conlangers' World Government. I just can't wait for the hour "H" :)))
