First off, I'm sorry that my reply has taken so long, but y'know, the Real Life ... I think I've always been more interested in language-related stuff than into figures, but only Mark Rosenfelder's Language Construction Kit ( has got me into conlanging. That said, I am certainly no linguistics wiz and I could learn more about linguistics by reading all the papers and grammars I once downloaded because the topics seemed interesting, but most of them are quite difficult to read so that I lose track and interest after a couple of pages usually :-| That still doesn't stop me from conlanging, though. Looking up specific information about some feature, OK, but reading papers just because doesn't work for me somehow. Well well ... Regards Carsten
