Having to look up and, more often, coin new words is also what keeps me from
being fluent in Old Albic. The grammar, despite being different in many
respects from the grammars of the natlangs I am familiar with (remember, Old
Albic is a fluid-S active/stative language with degree-of-volition marking,
Suffixaufnahme and a handful of other "exotic" features), is quite readily
accessible in my mind - I am almost blindly familiar with it.
