Until a year ago I discarded my first conlang. A few months ago, I looked back at it and realized it was more inventive and clever than what I do now. I've kept so far the 10 cases I found in the early days of conlanging to 'explain' relations between words and derive predicates - as the current Group Conlang conjures up - but the whole vocabulary changed, swelled and then shrank when I was able to derive all of it from noun roots. I still wonder how I could create this grammatical bases at that time. Children always surprise us :-) We should never grow up so we could perfect conlangs :-)) ----- See the original message at -- Free e-mail group hosting at
