So am I. I want more answers from other conlangers. When I started conlanging, I had never read Tolkien (I read the Hobbit... only last year), I could hardly say 'hello' in German, I did not know anybody making a language, I was wondering why I was doing it and I was very affraid of it given my very stern family environment, so I've been thinking for years I was nuts until I realized that it had never impaired nor threatened anything in my life by then. Also discovering that one of my ancesters did the same without hiding made me more comfortable : it's all genes so how resist ? :-)) ----- See the original message at -- Free e-mail group hosting at
