Re: Lighting Some Flames: Towards conlang artistry

Having blathered on for four paragraphs, I failed to recognize what I
felt to be the most cogent part of Jesse's original posting; the lack
of critical repsonses to each other's work. While I don't think that
we should formally declare "schools" of conlanging aesthetic (since I
don't believe language construction to be an art, and also because we
seem to have formed de facto schools already), I do hope that we can
give the grammatical posts which come our way more careful attention.
I, for my part, resolve to do this and to provide more feedback on
phonological matters which come up. I think we owe it to each other
to be more responsive to each other's work; that's why I joined the
list oh so many years ago -- to see what others had to say about my
ideas and to say something about the ideas of others.
