I've been thinking that pretty much all of my recent langs, especially the ones that have been getting the most use, are way too regular. Tiki of course (as a fictional auxlang) makes sense to be regular, and Minza is supposed to be simple to use, without unnecessary complications. Nimrina is still too new, but I'd like to try introducing some irregularity to it. Still, Tirelat and Minza are the only recent ones developed enough to use in relays and translation exercises, and they're both unnaturally regular. Jarda, an older relay-suitable language, was also extremely regular, although it had some interesting quirks in word derivation.
