I know what you are talking about. Old Albic is where I let
my lamatyave run free, and I am often tempted to reuse all
those ideas in other, unrelated conlangs for their perceived
prettiness and niftiness - but then, I manage to say to myself
"Don't relex Old Albic - do something else". After all, most
of what I do in Old Albic would be out of place in both the
Indo-European artlangs and the experimental languages. And,
as I wrote earlier in this thread, I feel that ideas ought not
to be reused without need.
