I've always felt deprived growing up monoligual when many of my friends are either bilingual, trilingual, or monolingual-and-a-half. I hope to be able to teach my children [my conlang] Rokbeigalmki, in addition to Hebrew, Spanish, Yiddish, and any other natlangs that i may acquire from now until i get married and have kids. -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
