Frankly I wasn't even interested in conlanging back then. I
only started conlanging when I was 16, and of course, my
first conlang was essentially a clone of German with some
odds and ends and a horribly inconsistent sound.

Ayeri still lacks linguistic background and a couple of
complicated twists (such as several conjugations and stuff),
but I don't feel like recreating it from scratch.

Kind regards,
