Hello! If you become interested in a topic, go ahead and ask. Chances are, if someone has the time you'll be answered. :-) And yes, while a lot of conversations of late become technical, less technical topics do occur (and can be started). I confess my own technical knowledge of linguistics is rather weak--just dive in when you're curious, and you'll start picking things up.

Hey, that's an interesting idea. I haven't done so, but I'd also be interested in any reconstruction others have attempted, assuming they aren' t stark raving mad or gobbled up by Colours out of Space or somesuch. ;-) (Yes, I do like Lovecraft, insofar as the word "like" can be applied to his works.)
