Unusual, yes. But not impossible. You won't easily find, say, a piano concerto in A flat minor, though I wouldn't be surprised if the monster existed. Seven flats are really no fun to work with. On the other hand, it occurs frequently within certain contexts, especially in the case of down-modulating. As you can see, I'm back from my vacation, exchanging warm and pleasant Greece for this cold and wet country. My first post is, of course, extreeeeemely conlang-related. Have I missed something important/particularly interesting? Cheers, Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
