I assume you mean Jean Mark Gawron, and the book is, I think, _Dreams
of Glass_.  (I haven't read it, but I have read his first novel, _An
Apology for Rain_, which was OK, and his second, _Algorithm_, which
was godawful and practically unfinishable.)

Another linguistics-derived book is _The Embedding_ by Ian Watson,
which involved raising kids speaking an invented language in the
Amazon.  Seems to have been somewhat Whorfian in outlook.
