i agree with Andrew.
tunu as of now would be :
"tunu tutu maikosa maituma kaka"
("language (of) you have-opportunity have-place here")
but i'm honestly not sure this motto is needed either -
all the more as it looks and sounds pretty stupid to westerners.
T-shirt founders' and best known conlangs' mottos are enough i think.
i buy equivalent to 100 euro of them if released regardless of the conlangs
printed on them with a minimum of 5 such langs plus english.
elvish is welcome in whatever script - this is because i believe tolkienish
fashion is to be expected when the movie comes out and is the opportunity
for conlanging to let itself be known and respected as another "normal" art.
