I don't understand this. There are different "standards" among painters, and yet one can love both Picasso and Botticelli. Standard: "an acknowledged measure of comparison for quantitative or qualitative value, a criterion." Seems one can love an engelang and an artlang yet hold them up to different standards. Love of diversity should encompass standards as well.

I'll read it. And my article on conlanging was published in Media-Culture in 2000: Sally Caves Eskkoat ol ai sendran, rohsan nuehra celyil takrem bomai nakuo. "My shadow follows me, putting strange, new roses into the world."
