Opposed to an egoistic romance lang? I like germanic languages in all their imperfectnesses.

And it doesn't need another unoriginal romlang either. Or any auxlang. Just learn Inyauk. ;-)

Alternately we all could learn my second conlang in two weeks and live happily every after.

Even if it forms naturally?

Agreed.

It'd be sooo boring if everyone spoke the same language. I mean, not everyone speaks English but it's already pretty boring. It serves its purpose though.

English isn't boring -.-, it's just overly used. IMO

That's pretty much what I meant. It's too common to be exciting... And I guess I'm not a fan of the whole wherever-I-go-I-can-get-by-using-English attitude, nor of the anything-other-than-English-is-weird-and-stupid attitude (I'm not saying everyone's like that, of course).

:-o!

But that's what makes them so interesting :-(.
(And it's not like I like all germlangs... I mostly like North Germanic langs.)

No way. I was working on a KSL with 244 consonants, maybe that could be something.

IMO the ultimate global auxlang would be one with a Khoisan phoneme inventory, Salishan phonotactics, Athabsakan verb inflections and a Pama-Nyungan case-system, that is written with traditional Chinese characters.

There was indeed an attempt at making a collaborative Germanic auxlang here as well.
