Sorry if this has already been said -- I can't manage to keep up with Conlang. Claudio Gnoli (iirc, but it may have been another) came up with "glossopoesia". I had independently come up with "glossopoeia" in pre-Conlang days (iirc) -- it is after all an obvious word -- but, and this is why I'm posting this, Steve Deyo was publishing _Glossopoeic Quarterly__ in pre-Conlang days. Yes, there were small conlang journals in pre-net days (also _Taboo Jadoo_ and _journal of Planned Languages_), but of course it was nigh-on impossible to discover their existence. But it's useful to realize that not all artlangers were working in ignorance of one another in pre-net days. --And.
