Hi! I'm Taka, she who has tasked herself with building LonsFlag.svg Lons, a nation meant to house Lonish [1], an a priori conlang by me (which means that it's a constructed language without any purposeful linguistic hooks towards natural languages). Apart from Lonish, I speak Dutch natively, and English fluently, and not much else, although I suppose you could talk to me in German and perhaps I'll know what you're trying to say. But, if you're reading this, there's a very low chance you'd prefer speaking German to me anyway.

Not exactly sure what else to put here, but feel free to hit up the my Talk: for any questions you might have that I could potentially answer (or anything else really). PMing me also works.

(This page not constructed just to make my name blue.)

Everything down from here is just kind of a sandbox, mostly information that I've gone and used while not really being relevant enough (yet?) to warrant its own wiki page.

Deaf Streets

In Winnster postal services, deaf streets is the common term for streets that have no houses on them. Commonly, these are either short connecting streets, or large roads. It is not uncommon for a street to be marked a deaf street while still having one or two houses on it - these houses are commonly then addressed as part of a nearby street.
