Not much yet. I came up with a bunch of sound changes and am looking at
what happens to the Latin conjugations and declensions. It looks like there will
be three noun cases, so the first version will be "Old Lethin". Most of the
verb "tenses" remain, although the singular forms and the 3rd person plural
usually fall together.
The sound changes include:
stops become fricatives after vowels
velars are palatalized before any vowel
labiovelars become velar
nasals disappear before consonants
neutralization or deletion of short vowels in unstressed open syllables
and a lot of others.
I could give the orthography, but that might be too dull.
