That's OK, Tom, some of us know EXACTLY how you feel! ;-) ObConlang: Remi, maybe we, conlangers, DON'T have communication problems, except perhaps a greater awareness of how _everyone_ has a communication problem - so we try harder. I think the conference thread Sai mentioned on the sociology of conlanging may be more informative, tho how much hard fact do we have? And we _all need_ new ways to express ourselves - look how poorly we do, by and large. Regards, Yahya
