Indeed! So much that I didn't begin conlanging because I had discovered Tolkien or Esperanto, but because I was taking Latin classes!!! :))) It's true, I began conlanging *during* Latin classes, which were boring for me because too slow (the others seemed not to be able to grasp the basics of Latin grammar. Personally I had already finished reading the Latin grammar book we had to buy ;)))) . Oh yeah, I was 13 ;))) ), and my first conlangs were mere relexes of Latin with sometimes a bit different features (like an instrumental case - I had heard of it already), genders and declensions mapped very well ;)) , etc... And Jovian is even less evil

I heartedly agree! In this case it's not a bug it's a feature ;)))) . Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
