Re: Orthographic differentiation of homophones in conlangs

Kireshi differs in orthography based on the origin of the word. Especially for gemmination: English words repeat the consonant, Rejistanian origin words use h as the 2nd consonant.

Re: That awkward moment when you...

I can imagine this in the case sound changes conflate the past and the future tense.

I do as well. To make my nerdery even greater, I managed to use it for a university project (and I had not studied anything related to linguistics).

Re: Largest Inflection table

Definitely Ilaksh! But as for irregular and thus large... French verbs and German nouns... come to mind. There are many paradigms in both cases.
