I never even knew before the Internet that there WERE a lot of us. Oh, I knew a tiny bit about conlanging, thru encountering a few fictional languages in a series of books (actually had an appendix with a short description of three of them), but I think I called my project, Tarni'f, an "invented language" or maybe "made-up language". Once I got Internet, a soon ran upon a site about conlangs, I think it might've been Jeffrey Henning's site, but I'm not too sure. That got me started on conlanging again, and I invented a few langs before creating W., which has lasted for quite a while. My first post to the list about it was on April 30, 1998, which was shortly after it was invented. If interested, it's in the archives at - a lot of changes were made to it, indeed, the next day I posted about it with a much simpler phonology. I'd forgotten how many vowels I gave it early on - 38 in all including nasalization and length (14 basic vowels)! -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
