Website update - Dutch Conlang Society

When we cleared out our archive (and a few of our bookshelves) in
preparation for our move to a larger house, I not only found the
Thunder Rock notes, but also the original article that appeared in
the NRC-Handelsblad, the most prestigious (though not the best) Dutch
newspaper, about the short-lived Dutch Conlang Society (Nederlands
Genootschap voor Linguafictie, or NGL). It appeared in 1991 or 1992,
I foolishly didn't date the clipping, but I've scanned it in, and put
it up - it's a png image, the text is in Dutch, but quite interesting,

You can find it at:

(This clearing-out also means I can reach my linguistics books again,
and that I've found my first grammar of Denden, from the mid-eighties.
Denden still had articles, at that time. And every grammatical distinction
was made with vowel changes, which is the reason Denden pronouns still
have vowel changes to indicate person, instead of different consonants,
which happens in no natlang I know of, and is dashed inconvenient.)
