There is the "Universal Language Dictionary", (posted here the other day, or Google for it; also linked on langmaker) which is a list of things a mature auxlang should be able to express. For conlanging in general it may have to be a different kind of list, to allow for things like cultural variation (prime ministers, computers, etc., don't need to be expressed by all conlangs). *Muke! -- website: LiveJournal: deviantArt: FrathWiki, a conlang and conculture wiki:
