- View SourceAfter having procured a copy of "From Latin to Romance in Sound Charts," I
am now starting a GMP for another Romance language with the working name of
"L3." (Inventive, no?) Anyway, I'm enjoying the work of the author who laid
down rules as to the changes from Vulgar Latin to our modern Romance
languages. I'm wondering if those who have created a GMP would be willing to
share a link or file with me (and hence the group) to see how it was done.
The changes I am working through will actually allow me to develop an early
vocabulary, a mid vocabulary and a modern vocabulary at least in principle,
which is something that I have always wanted to be able to see.
Aside from morphology (which seems to be the majority of the GMPs that I
have seen) what else is typically included?
Any information is appreciated.

natural language's GMP looks like, and thus what an ideal
GMP for a conlang looks like.

Grace for the explication.
