Looks nice. However, I was troubled by this line in the online grammatical documentation: "... the derivational system of Terkunan is still productive. It works agglutinatively, and stems never change when affixes are added." So what happened to all of the nifty stem changes from Latin? (scribere ~ scriptura, etc) I think it's a shame that it's gone, and also to my mind, slightly unrealistic. Of course, if you're indulging your preferences, then there's no reason to include anything you don't want to ... Dirk
