I can safely speak for everyone when I say that we're all looking forward to that. A couple dozen years of experience must show something. -kristian- 8) I hope nobody has been waiting with 'bated breath! I still haven't put my notes into coherent form. As for my conlanging experience ... it has been done with only a little knowledge of formal linguistics terminology, and with little continuity between efforts. My current conlang is an experiment -- I'm trying a few things out liguistically in order to understand them better. Lexical items are invented and dropped at a moment's notice, and it's not intended to fit a conculture. A couple of my design criteria are 1) it has to be something I can pronounce without too much effort, 2) the lexical items should mostly be things I can remember easily. More later. Jeff
