Good point Sai. They results of the 2d writing system thread (and the contest) would be v. insteresting to publish. Trouble is, people need to be willing to help collate their discussions - it would be way out of my depth to do them on my own (gotta admit some are pretty obscure :) I would also hope that people would put forward grammars and texts of and/or in their upcoming Conlangs ! Any takers anybody ??????????????????????????????????????????
