Well, it depends. I have made several morpho-phonological sketches that share the same higher grammar, they are all relexes of each other. So you could say that I have worked on the morphology and semantics of Sketch 8.1.4 in fifteen years, but only today come up with the morpho-phonology. Herman Miller wrote:

Agree. This is what happened to Raikudu, and it's still undone. *sigh* Fortunately, I doesn't have to many morphemes yet. John Vertical wrote:

Agree. I only have one main grammar for all my sketches. -- Veoler
