I've started (sorta) working on two new ideas (thank you Steg for the
seed, both came from the Cyrillic discussion).
The first is called "Englishki", which is based on this theory: a group of
explorers or whatever trying to cross the Northeast passage in about 1400
or 1500 crash in Russia and stay there, eventually becoming a fairly
sizeable population (1000-ish by the October Revolution), suffer a slight
fall in numbers during the first half of the USSR's existence (850 in
1960), the rebounding to around 1100 today. They are located in the area
around Dikson on the northern coast of Siberia. Their language is
basically an evolution of 15th century English with much Russian and some
Nenets influences, written in Cyrillic.
The second is this. I remember someone once referred to the conlang Tech
as an interpretation of the IPA. Well, this idea I have will use every
cyrillic letter phonemically. I don't know yet what it's called or what
it's related to but I'll figure it out.
