I would like to pose this question in a more general way, especially to those of you who have brought more than one language to the point of general usability. that is; do you consider there to be some discrete point from where it is a good idea to start participating in relays and translation exercises with one's fledgling language? and if so, what defines this point? for certain, there is nothing like actual use for expanding one's dictionary and honing the grammatical details. but starting too early has its own dangers, such as producing lexical entries and morphologic or syntactic mechanisms which are too much geared towards solving that particular problem. --- Camilla ana de esse limine ninda yastiar
