A Reminder to MAARTEN VAN BEEK and others

The time of the teaching of my class on conlanging draws nigh, and I was
wondering how you (Maarten) were doing on that article on conculture. ~:D
Also, this is a last second, last chance reminder to everyone else on
Conlang: If you'd like to submit ANYTHING you think would be appropriate in a
reader on a class on creating languages, you have until this Saturday (the
19th) to submit something off-list. After that point (maybe a week or so
into the semester), I'll be taking orders. Don't give me orders now; I want
to take down an official list so I remember and don't leave anyone off. I
may have to give the fellow making the reader an approximation, though, so I
might have to do it sooner; we'll see.
Also, about clicks. They say, for example, that a bilabial click is when
you make the kissing sound. But what about when you make a popping sound
with both your lips? They're two very different sounds, yet...represented by
the same symbol? The same goes for the alveolar and post-alveolar clicks.
