Hello all,
I just got an email from one Marina Sidorova, Prof of Linguistics, at
Moscow State University, asking for persmission to publish something
on Kelen. Is there anyone here who reads Russian who is willing to
check out the website and confirm that she's who she says she is? Or
perhaps someone has met her at a conference? She emailed me from a
gmail address, so I can't use that as proof of affiliation.

She writes:
"I am a professor of linguistics at Mosow State University, Russia.
Together with my postgraduate student I have completed a research on
conlangs in Internet and the book is about to be published. Your
language - Kelen - is one of the projects analyzed most thouroughly.
We ask you for permission to print as one of Appendices in this book
the  Introduction to  Keleni civilization written by you which we got
from your Internet page, of course with indication of your copyright.
This would give to the readers a better idea of the backgroud of the
language material we describe and its cultural implication.
Probably, you would never hear of our book, but I feel it is a proper
act to ask your permition to use your text and we would be very
grateful if you allow us to do it."

Thanks in advance,

Sylvia Sotomayor
