The more that i've been using my conlang Rokbeigalmki the more i keep on

written in Original Ziifer script i may write a letter in Modern Rokb.
script, etc.
This also happens with regard to the language the Psych
section of my looseleaf, i was writing my headings in Rokbeigalmki, and
instead of translating "Language Acquisition" (how fitting :) ) as
_datein tza'lesna_ it came out as _lesnatza datein_, an Ancient form.
I've also been dropping _wa'_ "to" in certain phrases, although i'm not
sure if this is a characteristic of the Ancient stage or the Modern
(Future) stage.  It could just be an influence from English, though,
especially in the sentence _azoi-kaun wa'khaz_ "i am able to see" vs.
_azoi-kaun khaz_ "i can see"(?), literally "i can (=am able) sight".

Does this happen to anyone else?
