Just a quick message to introduce myself to the group.
My name is Rik and I have been interested in constructed languages for
more years than I care to admit to...
Naturally, I have my own language - Gevey (for those who are
interested, there is a grammar and the start of a teach yourself
course at http://homepages.enterprise.net/rikroots/gevey/indexd.html )
I've been reading the postings for a few weeks now, and I am itching
to contribute - though my knowledge of linguistics is purely amateur -
but I thought it would be good manners to introduce myself first.
So, soon they topped the hill, and raced together
Over an open stretch of herb and heather
Exposed. And instantly the whole sky burned
With fury against them; earth set sudden cups
In thousands for their blood; and the green slope
Chasmed and steepened sheer to infinite space.
