Hi Peter, and welcome to the list!

I would love to find out more about La Petro. Could you post some more
information about it? For example, a sketch of the grammar, a small text
in it to get the "feel" of it, etc. I'm particularly impressed by the
fact that you've written three books for your language! Are any of them
available electronically?

Thanks, and welcome again!
