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
