Well, let me think about all my languages... We begin with Astou (ouch, goes with Azak :)) ), then Azak, Moten, Reman, Notya (a N!), Tj'a-ts'a~n, Chasmäöcho, O, Narbonósc (another N! :)) ) and Itakian. Only three out of ten begin with the major letters :)) . Not bad, knowing how much pain I have to find correct names for my languages :)) . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
