If you have a decent web-browser you should fairly easily find quite a bit of info on all these languages, except La'adan whose presence on the web seems very meagre.

CONLANG means any constructed language, or on this list more often a 'being-constructed' language. AUXLANG means any language used as an auxiliary between different groups of speakers; it may be a natlang, e.g. English, Swahili, Latin, Koine Greek etc, or a conlang like Volapu"k or Esperanto. An ARTLANG is a conlang constructed as a 'work of art', so to speak, like Tolkien's Quenya & Sindarin. Ray.
