Congratulations, Lieven! A truly impressive feat! (And I was surprised to learn from the wiki article that _Alice in Wonderland_ was published in 1865 -- I imagined it coming out closer to the previous turn-of-the-century.)
But the obvious question for conlangers and conlang aficionados:
How did you manage to translate: "-I quite agree with you, said the Duchess; and the moral of that is-’Be what you would seem to be’-or, if you’d like it put more simply-’Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.’"?
Also, *woSwa' ghew* is defined as a rolling bug. Does that mean an isopod crustacean, i.e. a pillbug? (I call them pillbugs, my mother calls them sowbugs, my sister calls them roly-polies.)
