Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Tagalog sounds like just what you're looking for. Easy to write, has /ɾ/ rather than /r/, non Indo-European, and spoken by over 70 million people so not too many speakers but also enough that you could have plenty of people to converse in it with.

I'm planning on adding a few Ởnh·Vú specific hanzi simplifications (particularly for 義, 魔, and 曜) and was wondering how I could go about it. Not just in terms of programs that could help with it but also things I could look at for inspiration for simplifications. Right now I'm thinking I'd like to i...
