One of the people in my class is doing a conlang that, in the
conculture, is meant to be a somewhat kludgy conlang.
If you think of this a bit, what this means is essentially one of the
goals is to be as much like a newbie's conlanger as possible... but
more so. Almost, one could say, a parody thereof?
So: Advice? What would you want to do to not grow out of, but *build
upon* all those newbie's mistakes you've made?
(This is presumably somewhat different than merely the opposite of the
"naturalism" goal, though that's a good starting point.)
FWIW, the setting is post-apocalyptic California.
