A conlang does exist in the real world though. It doesn't require a separate culture for its existence. As an example, ASL (not a conlang, of course) exists in the US (and Canadian) cultures, but there is virtually no sign of it in that culture. Yet ASL maintains its integrity as a language in that culture, whether or not the culture itself acknowledges the language. stevo </HTML>
