In fact, I don't know how much she will use it (not very much as I know, she is in the same engineering school as me, but also takes a literary course because she want to become a journalist, I think it will be the only linguistic essay she'll have to do during her course). But I will use it I think (as soon as I have installed it on a friend's computer. I don't have one). By the way, thank you for all who answered so quickly to my question. A last thing to say. This morning, after a long period of desert (between 5 and 10 posts a day from Conlang), I saw with pleasure the downloading of 40 posts. Youpi! My mailing box is again full of conlangers' posts!
