Kala publications

I mentioned earlier this year that I was revising and editing what I hope will be a complete and full grammar to be published before 2018. That is moving along nicely and I am actually a bit ahead of schedule. In light of that, I have started a publication that will cover the many writing systems I have developed for, or adapted to Kala. It’s my hope that I will be able to publish these around the same time, if not the same day. Please be patient, and know that I am striving for excellence with these two forthcoming publications.

Oh, and the revision of Omyatloko is also underway, with great strides in the near future.
