Well, until last year, I did all of my language work in notebooks. Any time the lexicon began growing large though, it started being problematic flipping through pages looking for words. Last year I set up a wiki ( ) on an internal webserver and have been using that. Just as a dictionary at first, but now nearly everything related to the language is there. The only part that I have yet to figure out is how to get the script into a computer. I have considered scanning it in, but my handwriting leaves much to be desired ;) ~Trinsic
