Does your twin happen to be a conlanger also?
My first conlang (ool-Nuziiferoi) was a project that me and my twin
brother started working on after we started learning our first real
foreign language in highschool, Spanish. Then he stopped working on it,
so i took some of it and mixed it together with Rokbeigalmki when that
popped out of nowhere. :-) Now he's somewhat interested in my conlangs,
but he doesn't do anything himself. He also gave my new conlang,
Jûdajca, the nickname "Jewsky" (he said the name [juwzajka] sounded
"survival is insufficient."
