Exactly. That's why when on the Ouglopo list (the French Conlang list, which unfortunately never really took off), the subject of a French neologism came up for what in English are called "conlanging", "conlang" and "conlanger", I proposed, and decided to use exclusively to help them spread, the terms "glossopoésie", "glossopoème" and "glossopoète". They just *fit* ;)) . Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
