Fair enough. I'll restate the point I was making then. I don't think Latiam and LPP are using the same sense of the word "language." I don't think Latiam literally meant that a new language was being created by a collection of neologisms.

ETA: Only because I'm curious, do you have a cite that it has always meant both? I accept that from a descriptivist perspective, it has both meanings, but I'm curious about the timing.
