this time, for real...

Well I wasn't sure I was going to be able to keep up with this list, but
what the heck, I'm back.

Currently, I'm making an attempt at teaching myself Korean, and I'm already
enjoying this. I had said in the past that I was experimenting with
non-Korean applications of the Hangul script. I mentioned Segul (or Segeul),
a modified and simplified Hangul-based phonetic alphabet for languages as
various as English, Spanish and Japanese.

I've found a partial German translation of _Hunmunjongum_ (King Sejong's
formal proposal for Hangul) but I lost the URL. I know pretty much what
there is to know about the *original* Hangul script, which has a few extra
consonants and one extra vowel and is more geometric in design, except for
the "soft labials" (the labial consonants: /m/, /p/, /pp/, /p'/) and their
phonetic value. So any info would be appreciated.

Also, I'm working more on the conculture of the Orcs of Antarctica, and have
a general idea what their language will be like. I'm basing it on English
and Esperanto, mostly.
