Well, you could start with what you just wrote! Otherwise, popular texts are the Paternoster (short with interesting grammar); the Tower of Babel myth (origin of diverse world languages, and thus of all our conlangs); the Starling Song (an old Translation Relay text); and of course, random paragraphs you find in others' messages. A good recent one was the True Poet text. Looking forward to more, Padraic. -- Gwerez dah, chee gwaz vaz, ha leal.
