a very pleasant page, i must say. trivial remark : white font on black back : i like it but maybe other reader= s=20 won't. plus you cannot be 15 and work out a like page that's indecent. language : a good start. interesting script. but i think your grammar is still thin. SOV with transitive S=B2V and intransitive O=B2V - or is it the reverse ? and why not SVV and OVV or simply default pronouns ? - is quite difficult to implement in natural langs, like in any lang using "gap filling" without using pro-stuff. english does fine with very little weaponry though. and jap too although "case tags" help. so i'm curious to see further development. computer stuff : yes. well i guess it's computer stuff because i could not=20 read one full line of it. (i should put some very ennoying legal stuff on my page= =20 about, say, french porcine breading sanitary regulations, that would make it too.) conculture : another kingdom with savage yet wise and obedient subjects ;-) no cannibals ? novel inception ? poetry : good. at least from a french viewpoint (i understand 'cavern' bette= r=20 than 'cave' and anyway poetry is no good or bad, it's what you're compelled to le= t steam out from time to time). courtney's page : this clogged up my computer, i had to re-start it. no bug i hope. i'll add your page to my conlangers' page tomorrow of course - not that it will change your current inbrowsing flux. mathias
