I do, very much so. Old Albic is not meant to be a solitary language; I am planning to build an entire family around it, and already have drafts of the sound changes. I have concrete plans for at least four further Albic languages, some ideas for a few more, and Albic will in turn be part of a larger "Hesperic" language family. What regards Henrik's original question, I don't find it all to difficult to come up with a satisfying phonology. That, like morphology and syntax, is an easy part to me. I have difficulties with vocabulary. ... brought to you by the Weeping Elf
