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 :-))
