There's only so much I have to say about my conlangs, and when I post neographies, those really don't necessitate more than a few "I like that" or "that's cool". It's difficult for me to get into linguistic theory as I am not a lingust and personally theory topics bore me (no offense). So, if we were all to stick with conlanging, the list would be quiet indeed. Not that that's a bad thing, buti personally find many of the tangents interesting. I tend to not post a lot about my conlanging process, becuase I mainly read the list to see what others come up with, not to solve a problem. But, that's just me. :) -- You can turn away from me but there's nothing that'll keep me here you know And you'll never be the city guy Any more than I'll be hosting The Scooby Show Scooby Show - Belle and Sebastian
