Bug with interlinears finally fixed
Sometimes, when saving an interlinear as "leipzig" format, an error page would pop up but the translation would still be saved. Now, its no longer an error page but an error message on the homepage of the specific translatation.
The message is necessary because a leipzig style interlinear has many rules to follow. CALS only enforces one of them, that the number of tokens must be the same on each line. A token is a bunch of letters and symbols separated from other tokens by a space. You could say that in English, most words are one token, while some compound words are written as two or more tokens.
|A B C
1 2 3
|A B C
So what to do if a word is written with one or more spaces, but the interlinear would only be one token for that word? Try a dash: A B-C would match up with 1 2. For the opposite problem, there are plenty of rules, see Leipzig Glossing Rules. CALS does not honor rule 2A.

What defines your conlang?
By adding your language here, and answering the questions by choosing a single value for each relevant WALS-feature (e.g. it's not a goal to answer every single one of them!), you might discover new things in your conlang, or grammar gaps that need to be filled somehow. By reading the descriptions of each feature at WALS, you also get a crash course in linguistic typology and universals – but be warned, some of those papers are overly scholarly...
- Pick some features and values at random, then try to make a language out of that.
- What would the most average conlang look like? Should it be updated to stay the most average?
- Contrary, would a conlang with many rare and unusual features be usable at all?
