This wiki is intended to be a repository for the languages I've created, but a wiki only works if you have many helping hands. Furthermore, there are some things I simply don't know how to do because I'm not an advanced wiki user. To help get the language information I have onto this wiki I'd love to work with individuals who are especially interested in seeing one or more of the languages I've created get on the web.

A curator should probably work on no more than 3 to 4 languages. Ideally, there would be one curator for each language. As a curator, you might do one or more of the following:

  • Write up (or start) the various grammar and phonology pages for a given language.
  • Write (or start) articles related to the project the language is associated with.
  • Define a house style for the lexical entries of that particular language.
  • Fill in extraneous entries (e.g. the various cells of a paradigm).
  • Add sample sentences to entries.
  • Ask me (i.e. Djp) for background information on the language in question.
  • Suggest lexical expansions for the language.

The task may be daunting and time-consuming, but it's totally voluntary and totally on your schedule. I imagine this wiki being a lifelong project, meaning it may take years for anything to get done. That's fine! This is simply for those who have a vested interest in learning more about any one of the various languages I've created. If you think you might be interested in being a Curator, please send me an email.

Below is a list of all the current and previous curators:
