. 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 Russian). -Stephen (Steg) "survival is insufficient."
