Definitely! But then, Jovian was not meant to be a romlang like all others. I consider the complicated phonology to be one of the most naturalistic aspects of the language.

Ah? I wouldn't have thought of English... the mutation patterns were inspired by Welsh, Sindarin etc. (though mine are quite different from those), while the overall sound of Jovian reminds me a bit of Swiss German or Rumantsch. =) The primary goal was to evolve the familiar stock of Latin into an all new direction.

Me too... now that I have verbs, I should be able to write sample texts. Difficult stuff like moods, relative clauses or comparisons might still need more work. What about Aingeljã, have you completed more sections of the webpage? -- Christian Thalmann
