I try to make a pidgin version of Gothic. It got a bit bogged down because I couldn't create a relevant conculture to go with it. It is very funny to make a pidgin, and relatively easy to do (I just take Papiamentu grammar and rules and try to transform Gothic into that 'template'.) Besides that I'm currently making an language that looks like a creole. In the end it has to be My Masterpiece, a lang that is nice to hear and easy to speak or write (so finally I can do those translation exercises without doing too much effort). Yes, I love pidgins and creoles Rob
