I'm on the train now, so this will be brief, but my first impressions of the very beginning are this - less chat, more business.
I'd simply put the quote in with no explanation. That the grammar is a conlang and you spent three years etc etc, that all goes in a cover letter, not the grammar itself. Also, if this is going to a professional linguist, you don't need to tell them what a glottal stop is. Let the IPA take care of that.
As a general style point, avoid the same conjunction at the start of two concurrent sentences. E.g. 'However, I also have no teeth. However, my mum chews my food for me'.
Don't connect sections with 'now let's look at the morphosyntax, bitches' and the like. Unless there really is a good segue, let your titles do their job.

Getting to my stop. More later, maybe.

Edit: Oh yeah, one more thing - no excuses. No 'I nabbed this feature from language X, soz'. If they notice, meh, if they don't, yeah!

Edit: Concurrent sentences?! I am not a morning person...

Ah, turns out I was wrong about the deadline– it's not due till the end of this week, so no rush.

Ambrisio, yes, xalet does mean friend.

GBR, thank you; even what you've already given me is helpful.
