Re: Yet another new one

It seems I am also constructing my own English - so many mistakes in just one
mail! I am sorry for that, as I have sent the message before correcting it and
especially correcting my misuse of English tenses. Sorry.

And there is something else I want to clarify: I am designing "three families of
languages" because I try to flesh out a fantasy setting. Thus, I don't plan to
design dozens of languages: If a newbie like me would claim that, it would be
nothing else than bragging. But the idea of three families gives me the
possibilty to create three different sets of languages which their own,
distinct features but with many loan words and loaned features too. I have
already seen that this is a very popular theme as many conlangers build
settings for their language and construct interacting languages. I started
working on my project six years ago, but nevertheless I am far away from
completing anyone of the languages.

Finally, I promise that I won't send a second message after every message I wrote - but
in this case, it seemed necessary to me.
