The Language Construction Kit This set of webpages (what's a set of webpages? a webchapter?) is intended for anyone who wants to create artificial languages-- for a fantasy or an alien world, as a hobby, as an interlanguage. It presents linguistically sound methods for creating naturalistic languages-- which can be reversed to create non-naturalistic languages. It suggests further reading for those who want to know more, and shortcuts for those who want to know less.

Google, others dig deep--maybe too deepThe whole point of The Web, and webservers, and search engines like Google is simple -- to make information public. The answer to this "problem" is simple -- don't store confidential information on a webserver. Period. The fact that Google now digs into non-HTML encoded things that people have decided to hang onto the web is a good thing, and if you don't want it to be seen, don't put in on a webserver. It. Is. That. Simple. NEVER NEVER POST ANYTHING ON THE WEB YOU DONT WANT TO BE SEEN BY EVERYONE!

It was awsome to see him live in Florida last year
Ravi Shankar, 81, looked frail as he walked onstage on Sunday night for what was billed as his final Carnegie Hall concert and last full-scale tour. His daughter and musical disciple, Anoushka Shankar, had, as planned, played the first half without him. But once Ravi Shankar picked up his sitar, there was nothing hesitant or autumnal about the music. In slow, introspective passages and fast flashy ones, he improvised with aggression and wit. After one burst of speed that finished with a syncopated twist, Anoushka Shankar, accompanying her father, doubled over with delighted laughter. Mr. Shankar is winding down a long career of bringing Indian classical music to Western listeners simply by improvising more of it, continuing to illuminate the tradition one piece at a time. He has to shorten raga performances to suit the strictures of Western concert halls, but that is the only significant compromise he makes with the music. In the 1960's, when he was already a leading Indian musician, he introduced Western baby boomers to undiluted ragas by assuming that they could appreciate what they heard. He was right; even listeners unfamiliar with the systems and subtleties of the tradition respond to the songlike phrasing of the sitar and the rush of rhythm from the tabla.
Mr. Shankar's two selections on Sunday night were a Punjabi raga with an unusual rhythmic cycle and then a thumri, a less formal garland (or medley) of ragas. The Punjabi raga had a tangy, assertive tone, even in the slow introductory alap, where sustained notes bent and wriggled like melodic eels. Later, joined by two tabla players, Bikram Ghosh and Tanmoy Bose, Mr. Shankar raced ahead of their pattering drums, then slyly doubled back. The thumri was even more flamboyant, with melody lines that coiled and struck like cobras and interjections that leaped out like sassy one-liners as the music accelerated.

Anoushka Shankar, 20, is one of the few younger sitarists with only one teacher, her father; more often musicians study with disciples of various schools. She is a good student who has absorbed especially well the punchy attack and unstoppable rhythm of her father's faster passages, though she does not yet pack drama into every phrase as he does. Sharing a bill with Ravi Shankar would be tough comparison for any musician, however, and Mr. Shankar taught the disciplined joy of his music with every note he played.

Afghanistan can be a very confusing place. Here's a quick guide to help keep track of all the players in President Bush's crusade against terrorism.

1. Taliban - Very BAD Afghans. These dour 11th century rustics wear turbans, don't shave, and cover up their womenfolk. They have defied the US by refusing to hand over guest Osama bin Laden, a national hero of the war against the Soviets. Nations that defy Uncle Sam get carpet bombed.

2. These wicked Talibs run a state based on Islamic law, an outrage in our modern age - except, of course, in the case of Israel, whose people say they were given their nation by GOD, and that's GOOD, except for troublemaking local inhabitants, called Palestinians, who are terrorists and BAD. George Bush says he draws instruction from the bible, and this is GOOD, but when Taliban's Mullah Omar follows the Koran, that's EVIL.

3. The Northern Alliance - GOOD Afghans, even though they run the opium trade and are led by war criminals. They make nice parades and vow to crush Taliban - provided the US does most of the fighting. Their arms come from Russia, money from CIA. You can easily spot them because they wear baggy Iranian uniforms and caps, not turbans. They cover up their women, just like those insensitive Taliban brutes.

4. Pakistan. On 10 September Pakistan was branded by the US as a borderline terrorist state run by a BAD military dictator, Gen. Musharraf, who backed Taliban and had lots of EVIL Islamic friends. By 12 September, however, Pakistan had become a heroic ally in the crusade against terrorism. Pakistan shamelessly ditched old ally Taliban, and handed over the country for use by the US military. Musharraf, now GOOD, is hailed in the west for courage and vision, though a big percentage of his people seem to heartily disagree. Before getting somewhat elected, President Bush couldn't even name Pakistan's leader when asked by a reporter. Now, Bush and Musharraf are new best friends.

5. The USA - GOOD, minding its own business, totally innocent victim of evil Islamic-Nazi forces, according to the well-read Bush, a former business partner of the bin Laden family. Just because the US has gone to war against Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Libya, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, and Afghanistan is no reason to believe it has anything against Muslims. Some of the US's best friends - like the Shah of Iran, Saddam Hussein, and the enlightened royal families of Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and the Gulf - have been Muslims. And just because the Israelis use US-made tanks and helicopters to crush the Palestinian uprising and assassinate its leaders - a GOOD act of counter-terrorism - that's no reason for anyone to get mad at the US of A. Washington has even thoughtfully got the media to censor itself so Americans won't be upset by TV footage of dead Afghan children.

6. Russia - Big winner in this unfolding mess. Clever leader Putin talks Bush into backing Russia's barbaric repression of Chechens as `anti-terrorism.' American cash flows to the Kremlin. The Ruskis are pressing the US to crush Taliban, saving them the nasty, expensive job. Ditto for Israel, trying hard to get US crusaders to go B-52 Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and Iran.

7. Saudi Arabia - Main financier of extremist Islamic groups - provided they stay far away from the oil kingdom - backed Taliban and extremist Wahabis in Afghanistan in a covert war against hated foe, Iran. US troops based in Saudi Arabia prevent its people from overthrowing their beloved royal family. The Saudis - aka `our Arabs' - used to be GOOD, but now, because of their reluctance to help kill large numbers of fellow Muslims, they are being rebranded by the US media as BAD.

8. Iran - VERY BAD ULTRA TERRORISTS until 11 Sept. Iran has been stirring the Afghan pot for 20 years. Tehran's mullahs hate Taliban's mullahs and Pakistan. Being much cleverer than Arabs, whom Iranians also hate, Iran's slippery mullahs are playing footsie with the US, and jointly backed the GOOD Northern Alliance against the BAD Taliban. Previous US claims Iran was a `rogue state,' and guilty of the bombing of a US military bases in Saudi Arabia, have been quietly dropped. Iran is now PRETTY GOOD.

9. Terrorists - Last week, Tamil `terrorists' staged bloody suicide attacks in Sri Lanka; Basque `terrorists' murdered a Spanish judge and exploded a powerful car bomb in Madrid; the IRA shot of a car bomb in Britain. Not a peep came from Washington. Terrorism, in the American definition, boils down to acts of violence only against American interests.

10. ULTRA BAD Osama bin Laden - Still alive and frothing after a month of being a bull's eye for America's vast military might. Calls Muslims to launch a jihad against the west, when what Muslims really need is a jihad against their own rotten societies that make them a helpless prey to western political and economic exploitation. Brother Osama increasingly seen in the Third World as a saintly figure, thanks to demonization by the US media. Many Osama wanna-be's waiting in the wings.

11. US Strategy - Carpet bomb'em back to the 4th century, waste bin Laden, and get the hell out before the BAD GUYS in turbans win.

Do-it-yourself Internet anonymity
Along with the recent government hysteria over terrorists, we've seen legislative measures and 'emergency powers' inviting law-enforcement agencies worldwide to conduct Internet surveillance on an unprecedented scale. But because the state-of-the-art of electronic dragnets makes it difficult if not impossible to exclude the comings and goings of innocent citizens, we thought this a good time to run down the basic techniques for ordinary, law-abiding folk to come and go anonymously on the Net, and keep their private business private.

Flood Of Cheap Afghan Heroin To Arrive Just In Time For Recession
NEW YORK—The nation's smack addicts received welcome news Monday, when The Wall Street Journal reported that the war in Afghanistan has opened the floodgates for cheap Afghan heroin, just in time for the coming recession. "Even if their stock portfolios are dwindling, America's junkies can take heart in the fact that the Taliban is embarking on a massive heroin sell-off, slashing prices dramatically," Wall Street Journal reporter Tom Petzinger said. "So even if GE drops to $20 a share, keep in mind that heroin has dropped to $50 a gram." Ed Evans, a recently laid-off Detroit auto worker and longtime heroin addict, called the report "real great, uh, that's unnnnhhf..."

Whatever you do, don't freak out and rush to get on board with the current "no scary costumes" policy being peddled by well-meaning "family journalists." Yes, living amid a real scare makes us revisit the topic--good! But Halloween's raison d'ĂȘtre is a one-night fling with our darker aspects, a yearly visit with the spooks and ghouls among and within us. Scary costumes are designed to drive the baddies away, to put to flight the restless souls who are given one night to prowl the human world before All Saint's Day shuts 'em down. Even if you don't buy the religio-historical roots of the holiday, most of us can appreciate that getting in touch with your dark side is a darn healthy exercise.

Costume-wise, this doesn't automatically mean bleeding eyeballs and severed limbs. Each of us has a different demon to drive away. On a diet? Dress as something from your menu of temptations. Technopho-bic? Come as a diabolical device. It's just that easy. And my E-Z costume helper will coax you toward greater understanding of your personal bogeyman, with suggestions from inside, outside and beside the costume canon. These simple steps are designed to get you suited and suitable within half an hour, with minimum prep and expense. And do hold or go to Halloween parties. Haunt your friends' houses and howl at the moon. Give the chiaroscuro complexity of Hallow's Eve its due.


It takes only basic craftiness to go from civilian to comestible. Options abound in the food pyramid.

Slice o' pie/pizza: Two pieces yellow posterboard (cut into triangles), stapler to affix them to same-colored shirt. Use red spray-painted paper plates for pepperoni, or wear a contrasting-color shirt for luscious fruit filling.

Buncha grapes: green or purple balloons, same-color shirt, neutral pants, safety pins. Not for the skittish--wags and rascals will pop you. Bring spares. Optional felt leaves add realism.


Basic costumes, often passed over as too obvious or overused, can make a mighty presentation if you add some tangy zip.

Holey ghost: Remember It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, when ol' Roundhead goes berserk with the shears and ends up with a Swiss-cheese sheet? You laughed then, you'll laugh again.

Witch/Bitch: Add some personality to your pointy-hat-and-broom ensemble by selecting a hateable female to lampoon. What formidable femme chaps your hide...Condoleezza Rice? Susan "Stop the Insanity" Powter? Martha Stewart? Let the rancor flow through you by wearing a WASP-y blond bob wig under your hatbrim.


Lesser characters from the catalog of fantasy deserve a second look. These sprites are plenty frightening. Lurking in chimneys and reaching under pillows--yeesh!

Tooth fairy: General fairy froufrou can be fashioned from a few yards of tulle. Coat hangers stretched with nylon stockings make insta-wings. A big felt molar pinned to your chest and a pocketful of quarters seal the deal.

Leprechaun: Green tights, shorts and turtleneck, too-small black blazer, black shoes with gold buckles (painted cardboard), green beard (grow or paint one), black top hat (cardboard), gold chocolate coins.

Santa Claus: Improvised with pillow-stuffed red sweats and cotton batting (fur trim and beard), it's the safest look in the book--no one mugs Santa for his candy.


You risk being ditched by mobile companions (especially if it rains), but cardboard-box costumes make maximum impact. Instead of going for Robot or Raisin Bran, consider honoring some of our less-lauded but essential cubiform inventions. The Smokeeter. The swamp cooler. The jukebox. For accuracy of detail, you might need to make a visit to the Sandy Hut (that's scary!), but once there, you might forget you even needed a costume.
The Sunday Times: Terrorism What Americans do best is domesticate things. That is what is happening here. An unprecedented assault on mainland America is being turned into sentimental psychobabble, an occasion for nationwide counselling or politically correct pseudo-courses. Daft as these things are, they are like tea and crumpets to the Americans - they exude the cosy glow of home. A new generation is getting used to the idea that the planet is not a safe place. It never was, writes Bryan Appleyard
Arab societies "have a very fluid sense of time," explains Mary-Jane Deeb, adjunct professor at American University and a Middle East specialist. "For them, events like the Crusades, a thousand years ago, are as immediate as yesterday. And they are very, very powerful events in the Arab mind. A lot of Islamic rhetoric revolves around the crusaders."

Are we on the road to dictatorship?
I don't know if this is apocryphal or not, but I like it:
Former heavyweight boxing champ Muhammad Ali visited the ruins of the World Trade Center on Thursday. When reporters asked how he felt about the suspects sharing his Islamic faith, Ali responded pleasantly, "How do you feel about Hitler sharing yours?"
