So, I infer that you found the Conlang Wikibook wanting and decided to start another project from scratch? May I ask why? It wouldn't hurt to post something on proposing the differential between what's already there and what you envision -- basically the only major change would be adding development examples for the three example conlangs throughout the book, and adding exercises for the reader. I don't think any of the people presently active on the Conlang Wikibook would object to those clear improvements. -- Jim Henry
