The CBB Conlang Census

Post by elemtilas » Tue 26 May 2015, 15:55

And in those days when Caesar was king at Reme, all the world was called to be accounted...

What's this all about:
Spoiler:
What:
This is the CBB Conlang Census, an enumeration and assessment of the constructed languages of the residents of the CBB.

Why:
A need for a listing or index of language makers and the languages they have made was expressed, and this resource hopes to fill that need by providing relevant information.

Who:
The Census is limited to works by the membership of the CBB, former or current.

Details:
The information given includes the name of the glossopoet followed by the conlang name(s) and a short description of the language, including its basic type, date of inception, relevant vital data and whether it is connected with some kind of otherworld. Lastly, links to relevant on or off line grammatical apparatus, glossaries, texts are given. Links to CBB conlang threads are certainly appropriate, as are links to Frath Wiki pages, links to outside / private websites, links to Amazon (et al), so we can buy a copy of your grammar book!

Individual entry listings are made for our major works, which are “presentable” conlangs – those conlangs that are fairly well worked out. If you would feel comfortable using your conlang in a relay setting, or perhaps describing its grammar in some detail or if you have written stories & poems then it ought to be more than presentable enough for a Census entry.

Most of us, however, have also got notebooks (real or metaphorical) full of notes & ideas for conlangs: sketchlangs, scraplangs, crazy ideas that can never work. We also have languages cooking along at various rates of congealment. At your option, you may also choose to PM the Census Taker with a simple list of all your minor works and works in progress without any kind of description or links (unless all your scratch & scraplangs can be accessed via a single location).

How:
To include your conlang(s) in the Census, just send all relevant information to the Census Taker (by clicking the PM button at the end of this post, or by replying to the thread itself). The Census Taker will make every effort to spell everything correctly and to format properly. It is the responsibility of the submitter to provide accurate information and to alert the Census Taker of changes that ought to be made (e.g., when one your languages makes the profound leap from scratchlang to major work!)

The Census Taker appreciates most all citizens who make their applications correctly formatted and in septuplicate, written in chancery cuneiform upon imperial bureaucracy standard pott sized tablets. Thank you! All others will be subject to the Hazard of the Fourteen Squirrels (Crimes Against Bureaucracy Act (1866, amm. 1912))

Xioran: Artlang (2013); made from scratch, highly isolating, regular, flexible word order. Japonic Latin: Graftlang (2015); A combination of Japanese and Latin. Unnamed: Auxlang (2014); an Esperanto-based conlang Neolatin: Artlang (2014); conservative Romance language Yunivah: Artlang (2015); designed to get words from many languages and keep etymological spelling. The pronunciation is always known, but some phonemes can be spelled with multiple manners. Proto-Auxlang: Auxlang (2015); This is a project of creating the easiest auxlang, a language supposed to be simple and easy to learn for most foreigners. Unfortunately, it seems that everyone here dislikes auxlangs. [:'(]

I really don't think we need spoiler tags; the languages themselves are the whole focus of this thread. I will just be clicking every single spoiler tag anyway.

Might as well give you mine. These are the three conlangs of mine with any significant online presence:

Himmaswa: (artlang, mainly isolating/analytic, topic prominent, vaguely SE Asian-inspired, with logographic script): Naduta: (artlang, strongly head-final, moderately aglutinative verbs, with logosemantic script) Yabushionese: (artlang, Japonic a posteriori)

Himmaswa (begun c. 1998, revamps in 2005, 2009, the majority of the script dates from 2012 and later)
Naduta (begun Nov, 2013)
Yabushionese (begun Jan, 2015)

Also maybe you should change my language names to italics instead of bold, to match with everyone else.

Also I misspelled agglutinative

Only one in any sort of presentable form is Tirina, which technically has roots in 2004, but the modern form only dates back to 2012. Artlang, agglutinative, for a conworld. CWS pages are here, but be aware some information is outdated (especially the phonology stuff): http://conworkshop.info/view_language.php?l=TNA

My earliest conception Vrkhazhian was created on February 2nd 2014... to be honest, I don't have a clue just how fusional and agglutinative my conlang is.
I also have: http://conworkshop.info/view_language.php?l=YVR but all but the dictionary is outdated.

I always lower my head when confronted with Clawgrip's Naduta and Himmaswa. I'm currently working on three conlangs (none of which would really count as detailed enough, I don't think, for the census), Proto-Sirdic (2014), Lesi Kirra (2015) and Proto-Skawlas (2015) (all spoken roughly 4000-5000 years in the past), and I might stop there for the moment, alternating between those three until I'm happy to move onto another (proto) language for Yantas, but the amount of work that's gone into them so far pales in comparison to Clawgrip's work.

The only thing I can say is that right now, none of the languages I'm working on are written in-world, so for the moment I don't have to worry too much about scripts. Once I make my way into history and developing descendent languages, though, I might end up tackling that challenge.

If there's another census next year, I hope to have a much more presentable set of conlangs, but wel'll have to see about that.

Also, well done to Ahzoh with Vrkhazhian. It's progressed really well, in my opinion, over the last year or so.

You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

I'm not sure if any of these threads are detailed enough to count, but I'll submit anyway:

Mithara: 2009*, Artlang, Polysynthetic, Conworld-focused
http://www.aveneca.com/cbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4362

Haneko: 2012, Artlang, Mildly Synthetic, Conworld-focused
http://www.aveneca.com/cbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3774

Tazaric: 2014, Artlang, Isolating/Ablaut/Tonal, Conworld-focused
http://www.aveneca.com/cbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4378

*Actually Mithara didn't really exist in its current form, as a polysynthetic north american-inspired lang, until 2012. Before that it was something else. But it's a Theseus's Ship problem, as the transition happened in stages rather than at any particular point. But the earliest stages of what would become Mithara existed in 2009, so I arbitrarily choose to date it there.

Bløjhvåtterskyll: (has no conlang wiki page yet. Where can you buy time and energy to make a good grammar "book" and lessons?)
There's a CBB page about it though, but there waaay too little information there.
----

Isn't it a good idea to include information about how many words the conlangs have and how far they are developed?
For example
Bløjhvåtterskyll: Artlang* (2015); ±1500 words, well-developed grammar**, with cases***, many endings***.

*: when is something an artlang and when isn't it?
**: there's waaay more Bløjhvåtterskyll than I've posted yet on the internet.
***: there must be linguistic terms for those, but I don't know them.

I love your phonaesthetics.

Also: this is the best thread ever. I would never have discovered half of these languages without it. Very much appreciated, elemtilas!

For my part, I keep my grammar notes formatted much like an old Joseph Wright or A&G grammar: all ready to export to PDF and save to a reader or, perhaps, have it printed via Lulu or a similar service. I actually did that years ago with an early iteration of the grammars & notes for languages of The World. Hopelessly out of date now but came out very nice at the time!
Isn't it a good idea to include information about how many words the conlangs have and how far they are developed?
Sure. As I said, for the purposes of the Census, descriptions ought to be minimal. However, if you can cram some interesting details into a few words, I'm certainly happy to amend your entry (though may edit as needed).
When is something an artlang and when isn't it?
See http://www.carolandray.plus.com/Glosso/Glossopoeia.html; especially Part 4, Artlangs and Part 6.4, the Gnoli Triangle.
There's waaay more Bløjhvåtterskyll than I've posted yet on the internet.
That's to be expected! All you can do is show us links to what there is online...
There must be linguistic terms for those ("many endings"), but I don't know them.
Morphology?

You're welcome! Of course, I probably wouldn't have done this without it being suggested first!

Ydtobogȧntiaky language family: diachronic artlangs (2014), a priori, fusional, part of the collaborative conworld Teles
http://telesconlang.wikia.com/wiki/Ydto ... _Languages (incomplete/not very detailed)

Kauzasian's part of this family, but its branch is the most different from the other languages in the family.

For some reason the link's not showing up for me, but copy-pasting the URL into your browser still works.
