Re: Conlang: Nawuin

It's hard to judge this, since I'm not sure what you're aiming for aesthetically. However, some aspects of your phonology seem somewhat European, like the large amounts of fricatives or the front rounded vowels. If that what you're aiming for, it's great and plausible. If you want something a littl...

Re: Why creole languages should be officialized and standard

One could turn the question on its head: Why should any language be "officialised and standardised"? Because: 1.
