I think that's wonderful. Doesn't the existence of a conlang closely related to yours add to the fun? Shortly after I had started Wenedyk, I was quite excited when I found out that B.P. Jonsson was simultaneously working on another Slavo-Romance language, Slevanjek. Now their are neighbours in Ill Bethisad. I find it very interesting to see what another conlanger does with the same idea. And you will always see that there are a lot of differences between the language, no matter how closely related they are. Just compare Kerno, Brithenig and Breathanach. So I would say: seize the opportunity! ;)

Of course. Okay, I admit that comparing Euroclones is less interesting, but luckily, you two languages are far from that. Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
