What a fabulous idea, Matt!   How many students do you have,
and can you find out if any of them have ever thought of making
a language up on their own?  Or done it?

O I would love to do that here!  (I especially like the wooden
wheel.  This eliminates debate and disagreement, and has a game-
quality ambience to it.  Just terrific.)  But as I'm not a linguist, my
notions of teaching "glossopoiea" have revolved around looking
at actual inventions, starting with Hildegard, etc.

The rest snipped to save bandwidth...
