Re: Language Creation: The International Language Construction Bulletin (working title)

    How about simply "Language Creation: Transnational Anthology of
Constructed Languages" or something nice, short and clear along these lines?
    _Anthology_ is more accurate a description of what we conlangers are
including in this project _and_ it avoids the elitist pretension of "journal"
and the vaguely manifesto-like _vibe_ in the word "bulletin" (::visceral
shudder of memories related to the Glosa IAL bulletins::)

    ... ::shy grinnie:: just me two bits, peeps, just me two bits...

Ever seen the Glosa IAL materials * ? LMAO... I have seen more better-done Punk 'zines... * well, I am only familiar with their early badly designed and printed materials (pre-2000)... benefit of a doubt, they may have improved (but that's highly doubtful IMHO) Hanuman Zhang {HANoomaan JAHng} /'hanuma~n dZahN/ ~§~ _Ars imitatur Naturam in sua operatione._ <from Latin> = "Art is the imitation of Nature in her manner of operation."
