If I didn't answer this 6 months ago, I am a hybrid scrapper/filler.

I'll scrap until I find the right match of aesthetics for a particular conworld.

Not exactly. Calthean would not use the dashes when translating the phrase 'one-to-one.' Which is 'ob nig ob' BTW.

Differing only on an orthography issue does not stop the impression of a total relex.
