at this moment I'm one hundred and thirty-one messages behind, and gaining
steadily. but I thought I'd introduce myself, being new on the list.
I live just outside Stockholm, in Sweden; and I've been an amateur conlanger
most of my life, though I didn't until just recently realize it had a name.
we had our own 'conlang' at home, consisting of words we'd used when we were
little, plus constant new additions. in the end, our friends had to learn to
speak it, too, since we always forgot to speak Swedish when at home :)
plus my parents both being multilingual, so I grew up hearing Swedish,
Amharic, English, German, Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian, etc.
so I guess becoming a conlanger was unavoidable... *smiles*
my favourite language is Japanese, which has a very special place in my
heart. and which has a tendency to influence my own under-construction
conlang, whether I want it to or not.
what made me stop to say hello is that I just read my own core conlang idea
in someone else's post. namely one by Christophe Grandsire.

I would truly love posting my own translation of Interbeing, but I'm not
there yet, and I refuse to cut corners in order to get there sooner.
anyway... sorry for being overly verbose.
