Invented languages

I found an online artificial language lab with a list of invented languages and various data and commentary. There's no "about" section, so I don't know why the guy set up the site, but it's interesting and he really seems to love language!

There's also a faq page, including explanations on why artificial languages are "useful and interesting".

Thanks for this.

There is only one really successful artificial (I prefer the word 'planned') language. That is, of course, Esperanto. I wish people well with their projects and conlangs, but Esperanto has shown itself capable of use for all sort of purposes. I recommend it.

Yes, Esperanto is quite established, but I guess people have fun creating other invented languages (such as Klingon) and use others as models to understand certain patterns.
