Back around 1983 (I was 12), I had no idea what a conlang was, except from movies like Star Wars with random meaningless words made up. Not much I remember except I had words ending in -itz [Its]. Now I'm thinking a Romance language (Old French had a lot of -tz words and I'm thinking that was the second person plural ending). Maybe a Basque-Spanish or Basque-French creole as well. Or a Celtic language in Spain, closer to Breton or Welsh. The ending could apply to infinitives in a Slavonic conlang. Since I don't like inventing languages unless I have a culture to apply it to, I'm open for ideas. Or I might apply this to Calistan (my IE-based language spoken somewhere in the Mediterranean). And why do I like island concultures so much? Daniel A.
