A few members of the conlanging community on FB got together and started a "passport" exchange. Each participant creates a passport in their respective language and then all of the passports are sent to one person.

Re: Lortho: An Artistic Conlang

For my wife's birthday, I wrote a small birthday note in Lortho on Egyptian papyrus.

Indeed.
And it also has the look and feel of Tocharian/Yuezhi script as well.
How interesting. I never researched Tocharian, but now that I have I can see where you drew that conclusion.
I second the forth-sallying, and ¡Soho! even [:D]
Thank you! Forth-sallying shall continue!

Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

This is the syllable nnau which represents the vibration of the universe; the sound which connects one to all things. This symbol can be compared to the Sanskrit syllable om.

Re: Lortho: An Artistic Conlang

I rather like it. What impresses me most is the way you've started to weave cultural artefacts into it to explain certain things, which gives a nice naturalistic feel. Thank you very much! As I trucked along with Lortho, I would discover certain words and their meanings. It not only helps building ...

Re: Lortho: An Artistic Conlang

not bad (: the sound system reminds me of Indo-Aryan languages; while the case endings reminds me somewhat of the Finno-Ugric languages. You are very perceptive! I did take a bit of inspiration from the Indo-Aryan languages for the consonants, while I took inspiration of the vowel system from Persi...

I love your script. Already saw some examples on your site.
Much appreciated! I hope to eventually write a codex in a way that it looks like it was discovered in an archaeological dig.
