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).

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! Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
