Is "Vayaun" the same language as "Vakaman" (that IIRC was called "Vokhomos" in an earlier stage)?

This never ceases to amaze me. Apart from Tolkien's languages, I doubt whether there is any other conlang that has ever been such a direct inspiration for other conlangs. I can assure you: without Brithenig, there wouldn't have been Wenedyk.

Well, the material you posted earlier about it was interesting enough. Me, as a Dutch person, had little trouble understanding it. So keep me far from your diary (as if the distance between the Netherlands and New Zealand wasn't big enough)... Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
