        This week's poll question is brought to you by Jan van Steenbergen, who
asks, "How many conlangs did/do you create? Are they interrelated? On how
many languages do you work simultaneously?" Since doing more than two
questions in one poll takes too long, I will have to save the last question
for next week.
        How many conlangs have you created (not including sketchlangs)?
        A. None - I'm still waiting for inspiration to strike.
        B. One - I'm a monogamous conlanger.
        C. Two - I started with one, but...
        D. Three to Five - I like to dally with a couple of different conlangs.
        E. Six to Nine - It used to be just a hobby...
        F. Ten to Fourteen - I can't stop!
        G. Fifteen plus - I need to check myself into Conlanger's Anonymous.

        Have you created related conlangs?
        A. I have created dialectal forms.
        B. I have created sister languages.
        C. I have created mother/daughter languages.
        D. I have created entire language families!
