Yeah, that's the "royal discipline" of classic-style naturalistic conlanging! This is what Master Tolkien did with his Quendian languages - and I am doing the same with Albic. Old Albic will have a number of modern descendants (I currently have plans for four, but perhaps I'll do more - there is plenty of room for Albic languages in my conworld[1]) descended from various Old Albic dialects. [1] The conworld of Albic is the world of the League of Lost Languages, i.e., essentially our world with a few extra languages. The speakers of Old Albic, who might have been the REAL Atlanteans, sailed the entire northern Atlantic and set up quite a few tradeposts, of which an indefinite number survived and evolved their own language. Greetings, Jörg.
