You may be aware that in AIL and NL there is constant reference to D E F I S.
These of course we continue to accept. However, we've cast about a bit more
broadly to accept all Romance and Germanic languages. (J himself did take
account of Dutch and Scandinavian for a small number of words, especially
"bli" from Sc for the passive auxiliary, and there seems to me no reason to
exclude Portuguese, whose forms are usually close to I S anyway.)
