I'll concur with most everyone else - try adding two tones, or do a daughter language, or maybe a parent whose tones got dropped with the evolution of ea-luna, which would be a good reason to have lots of witty ea-luna homophones. Are there any natural pidgins with tones? That would be interesting; ---> In Cameroon a pidgin based on English has two tones, downdrift and downstep. I used it as one of my inspiration sources for Gbwi`a`. Rob <----
