I like it! Very interesting idea. It makes me think of diagramming sentences to the nth degree of insanity. :) Nice-looking symbols, though. Reminds me of Chinese (and for the record, I know exactly _this_much_ about Chinese, so don't laugh when you tell me they look nothing alike). I'd like to see a neater example of the writing, perhaps after the same sentence being practices several times to get it right? Why does it have to be written only, though? Is it just that you don't feel like doing the phonology of it? How are you going about deciding what symbol represents what? Are they a priori or iconic? I'd certainly like to see more about this writing-language! -- Arthaey
