I've always heard that the French appreciated Lovecraft more than Anglophones ever did (the "Jerry Lewis Effect" :) -- perhaps he improves in translation. Wouldn't it be fun to collect up all the bits of monster-speech and cultist-speech in Lovecraft ("Y'ha n'thlei! Cthulhu ftagn!" and all that) in Lovecraft's works and interpolate a conlang from them? ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------
