Are you sure this isn't just because of my sexy voice? ;)
Actually, it was so fun recording snippets of my conlangs
that I've decided to put up a page on my site with examples
from Seimi and Rinya too.

Oops. Sorry about that. The problem is that the sound gets
so muffled. I made a recording where I talked closer to the
mic and a bit louder. It did sound better, but it still
sounded much like "blur blur blur".

Yes. Pronouncing your own conlang can be quite a chore. Though
Pimak came out surprisingly easy. I only had to do two or
three practice rounds.
It would be fun to *hear* some Ajuk and all other conlangs
as well. I'm especially looking forward to hearing some of
Danny Wier's creations. (And I'm not talking about that new
"minimalist" phonology for Orcish.) That might be fun... :)
My favourite all time high best recorded conlang ever is
Pablo Flores' "G'amah Hymn" where some trolls sing some kind
of battle hymn. Very funny! :)
is the address for that one.
