Not much, in my case. With Old Albic, quite a few ideas were
carried over from the defunct Nur-ellen language, but that was
rather rebooting the same project than starting a new project.
The various Old Albic dialects and their modern daughter
languages are of course linked together by means of regular
sound changes, but then, they are part of the same overall
Besides Albic, I have several other naturalistic projects
and a few experimental engelang projects. These are indeed
independent projects, and I generally avoid reusing an idea
I have applied to one project in another project. For example,
each of the X-1, X-2 and X-3 languages has self-segregation,
but it is attained by three different methods. X-2 is my only
stack-based language, and so on.

That's not what I do, even though I find coining words somewhat
difficult, and I could spare much work that way. Each of my
projects has its own lexicon (the various Albic languages of
course have lexica diachronically related to each other by
regular sound changes). It begins with each having its
own phonology, which in my engelangs ties in with the self-
segregation rules and all that. I don't feel like using Albic
words in any of my experimental languages (nor the reverse),
and my minor naturalistic projects (Germanech, Vandalic, Camonic
and the yet unnamed pielang) are a posteriori.
