I don't think I replied to this part. There's not a lot to tell, since I usually get stuck early in the development process. MNCL was intended to try out agglutination, ergative syntax, and a couple other things. 'Yemls uses the basic alphabet as a syllabary. Upper and lower case are distinct. The written form is fairly compact, but that's partly due to a somewhat ambiguous syntax. It's also supposed to have a "fun" vocabulary, which makes creating new words even more challenging. Rubaga takes classical Latin and applies a certain set of sound changes to see what else is affected. I need to do more research before going further with it. What little online documentation I have is out of date. Jeff
