I'm feeling quite lazy this week, and I don't really want to write my own articles. But I am reading a lot of awesome languages books, which I plan to write about in the future - including a book by my favorite psycholinguistics writer Steven Pinker.
But again, I don't want to write my own stuff at this moment. So, I'm going to hand out a few suggestions for interesting articles I've found/read. Some of them are old, and some are recent, but I enjoy them all.
"Europanto" - An unintentional interlingua that's being slowly formed in Europe. Thanks to the always-awesome Sofi for showing me this!

What Defines A Language? - Thoughts on national and ethnic boundaries, and how they affect the language VS dialect debate.
Five Reasons To Learn A New Language - 'Nuff said.
German Under Attack By English? - I know this phenomenon is happening in so many languages, not just German, but I feel particularly said at the prospect that German might morph massively with English one day.

An Introductory Lesson In Volapük - This is one of those languages I know nothing about. Fun time!
