Yes. Brithenig is a classic, and apart from researching new words, it ought to be kept the way it is. Any substantial change to its phonology or grammar would cause a major upheaval with the Ill Bethisad community and is not worth the trouble. A friend of a friend of mine once said, "Art is when someone says 'Now'." There is a point in most works of art when the artist declares it finished and refrains from further additions. Art always means to choose what to do and what NOT to do. ... brought to you by the Weeping Elf
