Only if you have a conlang site and want to post it. Otherwise, the blog

just the other day. And the list of Conlangs (sorted in various useful ways)
is really impressive--
Nothing to do with #1's reply---
>*7. How many of you have developed a rich vocabulary of obscenities?
>Someone commented that what's obscene (or just merely insulting) would
depend on the conculture. And I suspect many of of have overlooked that-- I

from the defecatory/sexual obscenities that _we_ consider so horrible. I
wonder if it's a Judaeo-Christian (+Islamic) thing...:-))
Any comments about other cultures/traditions? nat- as well as con-??
