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