What was the thing that first opened your mind to the exciting
possibilities of language? For me, it was studying Latin, which had a basic
word order different from English, and also a great deal of freedom to vary
that word order because of its inflecting morphology. It showed me, in a
way that French never had, that it was possible for a language to work in a
significantly different way from my own (I had been studying French at
school for one year before I started Latin, and the course was more
oriented towards basic communication than grammar). It was shortly after
that that I created Lingu Scribem, my first attempt at a conlang (The
Inevitable Euroclone).
