The amount of pages itself is quite uninteresting, imo.

+1

If you add examples and large conjugation tables to illustrate the rules and constructions it gat longer thatn just a plain description.
Anyway: My grammar currently has 14 pages.

One of things I most appreciate in a grammar is good formatting.

My Midhera grammar is ten thousand pages!

...Of blank space because I change it far too much to bother.
My pronouns are <xe> [ziː] / <xym> [zɪm] / <xys> [zɪz]

I worked a little on my grammar to day, and it just reached 1537 pages of text.

Beat it if you can...

Well, after uploading the newest update of my Kankonian page (with the information on the words for "each" and "not as . . . as" constructions added), I copied-and-pasted the text to my webpage into Corel WordPerfect.

In WordPerfect pages, my Kankonian grammar is now up to 75 pages. So I've hit a new milestone.

I shall celebrate by eating some lumpia for lunch tomorrow.

1,850 words without scrapping? Glad to see you've stuck with Waʻtē!

Because it's shaping up to be a great language!
