Albeit nowhere near the levels of development that many on this list seem to have achieved, I conlang for my own enjoyment. Words/grammar fascinate me, the way that can be assembled and re-assembled -- both for the purpose of aesthetics and of usefulness. Deep inside, I also do it because I hope (quite unrealistically, may I add) that someday I could imprint upon the world "my language" -- one which is both visually-beautiful as well as more precise that the clumsy natlangs. --- Jörg Rhiemeier <joerg.rhiemeier@...> wrote:

Nice description of the way I feel too, which Heather may note as part of my reply to her question above! Matt33 __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Make a great connection at Yahoo! Personals.
