One of these days I'm going to have the spare time to learn Quenyan (or High-Elvish) out of Tolkien's work. Well, as much as it is possible to learn a language with no supporting culture or official governing body. Fun stuff. Until then, I've decided to attempt Esperanto first. Should you be wondering why I just jumped from Elvish to Esperanto, they're both constructed, or planned, languages (ConLang for short), making them (probably) easier to learn and use by design. Just a test to see if the hype over ease of learning is true.
The lack of gender definite articles and indefinite articles, the ease of indicating the difference between objects and subjects, and simple, consistent verb tenses are very cool features, as anyone who's ever taken any cultural language might note.
