Women's Language

This article looks back at Suzette Haden Elgin and her women's language Láadan. I wrote about it in college as one of several examples of "Women's Invented Languages in Speculative Fiction."  She let me copy a quote from the then-unpublished Earthsong for it.  I later made a Láadan class for the Grey School of Wizardry.
