I see you're already accustomed to it :)) .

How nice! Do you have lots of brothers and sisters, and were your parents part
of it? :)))

Wow! Such a family is a blessing!

In this case, I think it's even genetic :)) . I suppose in such a family, being
a conlanger is absolutely not frowned upon.

Hehe, wherever it comes, Japanese seems to take the attention of everyone :)) .
We're quite a few on this list to have such an influence problem :)) .

Hehe :))) Great minds think alike. It feels quite nice to be quoted by new
members :)) .

:))) If you can read French (but you probably can in such a family :)) ), the
language I was referring to is Azak, and you can find a description of it on my
webpage (completely in French. The English part which was supposed to be coming
is postponed later and later).
> anyway... sorry for being overly verbose.
He he, on this list it's even a quality to be verbose :)) . So don't be sorry,
you'll see it's quite a characteristic of us all :)) .
Anyway, welcome again!
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
