The list hasn't had much traffic on it the past couple years (not
dead, I'd say, but highly inactive), but there was a splinter conlang
list devoted to West Asian languages (mainly a posteriori, but I
joined because Zhyler was influenced a good deal by Turkish).
Though the list has been quiet, there were a number of projects
discussed therein about descendants from Turkic languages and
also Semitic languages (and proposed by a lot of familiar names,
if you've been on Conlang awhile).
