Constructed Languages

After our class I thought I'd see whether I really could create a language. I found this really neat website with a "Language Construction Kit": http://www.zompist.com/kit.html I also discovered a message board for hobbyists who construct languages and cultures: http://aveneca.com/cbb/

The thought and effort that go into these projects really impress me. I also think it would be a novel way to learn about linguistics and anthropology in the first place.

Would any of us be interested in doing something like this?

I think there should be a classs where you create a language through out the course of the semester. Seeing its benefits and its intracacies. As well as creating a culture to go with the language. Using Tolkein and other authors as well as tv to demonstarte these concepts. would anyone take this class?
