Well, looking only at the phonology, I'd say the middle one. But that's only because I really really like the {ly} and {ry} combinations. (And {ty}, {ny} and {hy} as well). I have a phonology fixation (I wonder how Freud would explain that :) The middle one looks and sounds so nice.

Why not take all three? :) But judging from this explanation I would choose the first one, since it seems to be the most personal and quirky one. It probably is the best conlang to represent you. Am I right? But the middle one seems more developed and the third kinda interesting having no nound. This isn't helping you one bit is it? :) Is there a website where one might check these conlangs out, or do you mind sending some info to the list? Daniel Andreasson
