Any way to put that file elsewhere? Since the Conlang Yahoo group is just an OLD
archive, a LOT of people (myself included) don't belong, and are not interested

Very interesting! I am compiling information about conlangs in movies, and
was not aware of this one. Currently I know about some 50 movies that make
use of a reasonably complex conlang.

That is also very interesting, since I have been using conlangs myself to
teach grammar and linguistics, although I have done so at a much more
basic level, in primary school.
I cannot say that I understood much from the analysis document, however. I
imagine that it requires some verbal instructions in order to be useful.

Thanks a lot! Very much appreciated. Do you also know where I could get
hold of the special fonts that are used in the documents (SILSophia IPA93
and Doulos SIL)?
