OT: NYC-Based Conlang Groups?
- liyaá' łí'!
So, I've recently joined a brand-new club at NYU, the League of Linguistics
Students; but, for me, there's something missing. I have always approached
linguistics with a conlanger's point of view (as I'm sure a lot of you
have!), but in this club and the linguistics department in general, I don't
feel free to discuss conlanging. It either falls on deaf ears or no one
even knows what I'm talking about. It seems to me that, apparently,
conlanging is not "real" linguistics, even though everything I've learned
has been via conlanging, and I would say I have learned quite a lot (with a
lot more to go)! I bet others feel the same way, as well.
Does anyone know if there is a NYC-based club/organization/group/anything
of people who are focused on conlanging? What I'm envisioning is something
like Marta Masferrer's conlanging club in Conlang: The Movie, though that
might be a little idealistic. NYC's a big place, so I'm hoping.
