I'd say that TAKE is an artlang, no doubt. While it is an auxlang *within the fictional world of the WHAT*, to my knowledge it doesn't serve the purpose of an auxlang in the real world (at least, this is not *intended* by the author); and if a fictional natlang is an artlang (which is probably not in doubt at all), a fictional auxlang is an artlang as well. ... brought to you by the Weeping Elf
