I was just curious about how many people on this forum do anything to do with conlangs (short for constructed languages, or a language made or 'constructed' by someone for a certain reason such as for fun, or for a story or movie). I myself have a keen interest in languages, and so enjoy constantly building on my own own personal con called Langhadj (or Languiz d Jd).

I will be happy to hear of any of your creations, and feel free to ask about mine.

Also, sorry, but, I was actually meant to place this in Daft, hopefully it's okay though. blush.gif

Ooo. Some realife friends and I made up one, but it's really easy to figure out if you type it. Not exactly when your speaking.

I start making a conlang about 3 yearsish (I think?) ago. It hasn't really progressed terribly, though I did recently start playing with it again, and start writing an application to use it on the computer. It doesn't have a name, and doesn't use the latin alphabet, nor do I have any way of speaking it, so I can't transliterate anything.

I used to conlang a lot. I haven't had much time for it lately, what with my linguistics course giving me lots of real languages to work on. Morpheme identification takes a while.

I have created simple codes of English (with and without other participants), such as Suhoye (Yohu, tuhisu yisu suhoye, yanudu yitusu yacutuyaluluyu puretutuyu yeyasuyu.) Vaguely reminiscent of English loans in Japanese, that one.

I have created more complex derivatives of English, like the one I made the other day when I wanted to play with something: Dhisa alnnus, dhran mohd tunnastnn. I know it looks like some Quenya-wannabe, but it reads more like a pidgin if you know what's going on.

I have made one, and only one, language which involves lots of logic based in computing, including stack-structured instead of tree-structured syntax and all sorts of other unnecessary things. I had free time.

I've messed about with, but have nothing much to show for, lots and lots of a priori (that is, created out of nothing) conlangs.

The only one that I've done lots of work on and have recently started playing with again is called (named by a friend, for reasons I can't be bothered to go into) Kythish, an a posteriori language based on Old English and Old Welsh, to an extent. It has dialects, alternative writing systems based on a ridiculously complex social background and is, essentially, the pinnacle of my linguistic nerdy ways. I am both proud and deeply ashamed of it, is what I am saying. Here, have a brief paragraph:

Jesh hob sfc uwdiŋleŋŋǽ uwdgamrǽighrom mocen, nǽ stdth ahjr ahda mnsa nrnnssa far. 'shm thraf prannǽ r schomoda.

In fact, because I'm doing nothing much else right now, have the same paragraph in a different orthography:

Jeś hob sfac wƿdiŋleŋŋ wƿdgymriǵrom mocen, n std yhjr yhde mnse nrnnasse fyr. 'śm aruf pryẃnn ree sćomode.


JERUSALEM, Israel (AP) - In response to Israel's denial of water to the West Bank, HAMAS released three cheetahs in West Jerusalem, where they went on a killing spree, mauling four Jews and injuring thirteen.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Following a cheetah attack on West Jerusalem perpetrated by the majority HAMAS party, the Israeli Air Force retaliated by detonating twenty kiloton nuclear devices over Gaza City, Jenin, Nablus, Rafah, and Ramallah.

ASHDOD, Israel (AP) - As a result of the atomic bombings of five Palestinian cities, a 50-foot tall reptile has woken from its million-year slumber in the Mediterranean Sea. The monster has made landfall at Ashdod and obliterated the city. Eyewitnesses report that the monster left the destroyed city heading southeast.
