Is anyone here into conlanging?
« on: December 17, 2017, 11:43:42 pm »
Conlanging, the art of making constructed languages, is my favorite hobby. I've made a lot of languages, including Ghúath, Ronyka, Kepêmoki, xíronu, and an evolved version of xíronu with words like pngíʕħo.

I hope someone else shares my weird and semi-obsessive hobby.  :fox-:):

Maybe I should change my fursona to a mitochondrion?

I've never attempted making a language of my own, unfortunately (though I have tried making various scripts that will probably never be put to use), but I just wanted to say I love conlangs! I find them interesting and think it's sad that a lot of people don't think of them as "real" languages.

(Esperanto and Na'vi are on my list of [many] languages I'm interested in learning  :fox-:P: )

You should try it! It's pretty neat and you can find lots of video tutorials.

I'd love to learn to make a language, mainly for my own species. But I don't think I could be that imaginative lol

I actually have to make another languages. I am writing a book and I just have to place there different language for each nation (there is a lot of them).

I've tried to make other languages, but I never get far. Can't get into the habit of writing stuff down

I did make a language when i was much younger but it was very basic with only a few symbols which meant stuff rather than alphabetical
Perhaps you could tell us a bit about your languages, i'm curious? Unless they are secret :0

I had a symbolic language when I was younger, but I'm retrospect I guess it was more a way to encode messages because they were just English with different characters :fox-:P:

I make a lot of phonetic names though that could be considered a new language in a way since it's for a remote island place I'm working on.

Kepêmoki was my first language and it kinda sucks. First mistake, it's oligosynthetic. Basically that means that I have like 150 roots and combine them to make ALL the words. It's a pretty common thing for noobs to do.

My second language, Ghúath, is much better. It is naturalistic and synthetic (lot's of suffixes like spanish). It also has verb-subject-object word order. "eats he food".

My third was Ronyka, a head marking language inspired by turkish and finnish. Head marking means that you mark the syntactic head. I don't know how to explain it so I'd just look it up if I were you.

Finally is Xíronu. It is inspired by languages of the amazon rainforest. It's still a work in progress.

   Yes! Me and my best friend have three shared, and around four personal ones. At least I have four personal ones ^^*
   However, the first one I mde in third grade's the one I know best, I know a few spoken phrases by memory but it's mostly a written language. It's honestly more of a code then a language.  :fox-:P:

Ot depends on what type of lang. Are you going for a naturalistic lang? If so, try to throw in some "gimmicks". Xíronu inflects almost everything based on accent. So yeah, try to put some interesting features and irregularities into it.
