"It seems to me that a joint project in conlanging could be a really
fascinating game! [...] I thought of an *open* project of this type. For
example, an alternative timeline (several millennia long) with many
protolanguages contributed by different people in the form of very sketchy
descriptions (note that a proto-lang doesn't need to be described in much
detail), which are then elaborated by joint efforts."

   I very much like the idea of collaboration on conlangs, and it sounds as
if a lot of the constructed languages which find representation on this list
are "compatible" already; for instance, all of the Neo-Latin conlangs which
have been proposed, and the numerous Pacific conlangs such as zHANg's Lingwa
Frakas (to name just one).  Have any of the authors of these languages
devised a system or universe in which their languages could interact with
other languages grounded in a compatible reality?  I'd be interested to
know.
   I'd also like to hear if anyone is interested in contributing grist to
the hypothetical Waponi language.
