I just happened to rediscover (it was in my bookmarks but I rediscovered
this site from another source) this site about La'adan (sorry, my keyboard
doesn't allow me to put acute accents on 'a'):

if anyone's interested.

I must say that I like the language quite much. The use of a derogatory
phoneme (even if the choice of this phoneme can look like an insult for
people whose native language has this phoneme), the evidentials, the use of
cases that reminds me of one of my preferred languages, Euskera, and the
nice distinctions in the beneficiary case, the associate case and the
possession case, etc...

I don't have any special opinion about the philosophy behind the language
(I tend to be quite prudent as soon as someone refers to the Sapir-Whorf
hypothesis, even if I find it nice and useful to have a word for the
woman's action during the sexual act), but the language in itself is quite
nice and interesting. What's your opinion about it?
