> Who are you? I am Mechthild, Maggie, Rejis... basically I am me. > What are you working on? World domination, oh, you mean in regards to conlangs, Rejistanian is my main language, Neoquux and Laalasyicei are my sketch/proof of concept languages. > What's your L1? German > Your L2, L3, etc? English, Esperanto, used to be quite good in French, but am not anymore. Learning Turkish right now. > What do you want from a conlang? Naturalism or philosophical compatibility or usability? All my conlangs have to have a certain flavor, a certain smell so to say. Everything else is secondary > Do you have a language crush, whether nat or con? I used to like Ithkuil quite a bit until I read about a certain thing it did, and now I cannot even look at it without feeling peeved. > Who do you look up to? Tolkien or St. Hildegard von Bingen or someone more modern? Our very own David Peterson and Kamakawi. > Do you put your language in a fictional context? Yes, I do. Every language need a culture. > Are you down with nouns, or are you a verb nerb (alternatively, if you can't abide "nerb," and i wouldn't blame you, i'll accept "in lerb with verbs")? Rejistanian is all about weird stacked verbs, Neoquux mostly does wierd things with nouns. > Are you an armchair or faculty-office-chair linguist (whatever kind of chair _that_ is)? Armchair > Have you just finished, oh idk, defending a Master's thesis? :D Nope > Reference grammars or texts and translations? My rejistanian stuff is at rejistaniha.de/rejistanian.html . > Sounds or structures? Structures. > Grammar or lexicon?? In the beginning a language is all about grammar, then you learn it well enough to mosstly care about the lexicon... > Coke or Pepsi?! (These are the hard-hitting questions.) Whatever is around, cheap and not diet. > How did you get into this? Bored in German class... > How did you find this group? Altavista, I think. > And what drives you to continue making languages? It's fun... and I have this artistic urge to create things. Hope this helps.
