Well, several people have believed this was sarcasm on my part.
Not so. When I said "serious Real World languages" I meant it.
Real people speak, understand, read, and write them in the
course of their day-to-day lives.
Ancient Egyptian and Sindarin don't fall into this category,
no matter that I am an enthusiast of both.
