on a project influences your other projects. I'm afraid none of mine has yet left the lateral evolution phase for good. That is, any single feature (lexical, grammatical, phonological, etc.) may still be subject to relocation to another project on a whim… there are some limits to this (e.g. "don't include extensiv diachronics in a loglang") but it's still a real mess. Starting to sort the naturalistic projects' bits & pieces into loose Sprachbunds has helped, but I think I'm still doing something very wrong here. John Vertical
