Absolutely nothing! Very little work has gone into any of my auxlangs except for a bit of an overhaul to the Sasxsek references which I have yet to post. What little conlanging I've done has been mainly on Deini, something I'm finding much more entertaining now than auxlangs. > For example I think the appearance of Na'vi language in Avatar is the most > prominent thing for conlangers. I would have to say Okrent's book is pretty notable for conlanging. I haven't read it but it has got some attention. > Next year we will have special events like the official release of Lingwa de > Planeta. Now that I'm starting to find myself with a little time on my hands I should be able to put a little more effort into conlangs but which ones I choose to work on is subject to what mood I happen to be in at the moment. Auxlangs haven't really kept me very interested over the past couple years. Partially because I really don't support the conauxlang movement, and partially because making auxlangs, especially something like Sasxsek, does involve a lot of tedious work. If I need a new word for Deini I just take a quick look at a couple references to get some ideas and choose any word, usually something Germanic, that I want and mutate it however I want then add it to the dictionary. I can raeally do that with an auxlang where I'm careful to choose forms that fit the design goals.
