Wouldn't you care to post a list once of your P1-P27, along with a short description? I've lost track!

Let's shake hands then. A few days ago, I posted a message in which I wrote that I perceive conlanging mainly as a visual artform, but I got a strong impression that I was the only one. At least I'm not alone anymore. By the way, Hals and Vermeer are written correctly. The other guy's name was "Ruysdael" (or "Ruijsdael", but the difference between _ij_ and _y_ didn't matter in those days).

Really? The name "Isaak" made me think that you were born Jewish. Also because Russian seems to be the L1 of most Jews in Ukraine; my fiancée (who is from Lviv, as you might recall) is an example. She still considers Jewry as her nationality. Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P. Jones __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
