That's a fun subject header!

Just a quick line to let everyone know that I'm back, and I
read all the discussion that followed.  Thanks for the
congratulations and fond wishes!

Here is the classification system I used when I set up my first
substantial word lists in Urianian.

I've snipped the rest.  A neat system!  While I think I generally
agree with Jörg about the philosophical language fallacy,
semantic categorization can be a *lot* of fun for artlangs--
especially when it comes to noun classes.  If a language has
noun classes, then every noun has to fit into one of the
classes, and that in itself proves interesting even when you
only have two (e.g., masculine and feminine).
