Not conlang, but related: when driving around, I devise tri-consonantal
roots from license plate prefixes, such as most states now use: e.g SBG
.... That makes a root "sabaga", derivatives asbag, subbig, sabgi etc. ad
libitum. Vowels represent ?V. It keeps my mind off the road.
It's also fun to deform place names, by vowel deletion, etc: my town
Saugatuck [sOg@tVk] > sOgtVk, asg@tk@, s@gatk@ etc.
