Guess I will throw in my 2 cents; Conlangs; Nova, its mine and its everything I ever really wanted in a language. Lojban, always strikes me a very alien but that only makes it more intriguing. Esperanto, what the heck, its easy, it wouldn't take long, and I have toyed with it off and on for years. Possibly one of the lgs that I am creating as descendents of Proto-Adenan (spoken by the Adena culture of the central US circa 100 BC to 400 AD) No others, there are many, many I admire, but being a lg community of one is difficult. Natlangs Nahuatl (Classical and Huastecan), I can (have to soon) revive my reading but speaking would be nice too. Hopi: used to read it fairly well and spoke it crudely, still one of my favorites Crow: one of the most divergent Siouan lgs and there are lots of native speakers in my part of the country Aguaruna: interesting lg and I have a lot resources. Its Jivaroan, which are probably further related to Arawakan French: all those lgs, all those years, and my French is restricted to 1 semester as freshman in high school (a long, long time ago) Rusty but revivable if needed; Latin, Spanish Very unlikely but would be cool: Georgian, Swahili, Dakota, Comanche, Cree, Chinese, Sumerian, Arabic, Syriac (OK, I just like the script), something Papuan, and something Austronesian, maybe Tahitian or Hawaiian. Truth is, I will be lucky to more than one or two of the natlangs and maybe Nova. -- Brad Coon [log in to unmask] Somedays when you wake up, its just not worth chewing through the leather straps.
