Did you draw your inspiration from Tolkien's Black Speech (I think this language has some sort of ergative aspect, but I'm not sure)? Or did you choose this feature for another reason?

Re: My hatelang: Omlűt

Does anyone else have a similar project that consists of only features they despise? I do. It's a language called tútarä that I decided to create as a challenge, to see if I would be able to create a language I would not like. Turned I actually like it, but only because I became attached to it (sin...

Conlang [Gothic/Icelandic/Greek]

Here's a new language I recently started to create. I mainly draw my inspiration from Gothic, Icelandic and Ancient Greek (for now). Since it's relatively new it's still very incomplete, but it should be a bit more developped soon. ______________________________ Phonology Consonants: Plosive: /p/ <p...

Re: Idiotic minimalist approached conlang

By "idiotic" I mean an affix which can have multiple meanings and thus is some kind of "stupid" or "idiotic" in that it doesn't follow logical rules for word derivation. I would not call it 'idiotic' because it is illogical. Like in semantics, where you can have a logical and organised conlang, bei...

No. When it comes to constructed languages, the name of the new conlang is generally the last thing that I think about. Thank you for your responses.

Re: Semitic conlang

So to confirm, this language is inspired by the family's multiradical roots, but is not itself a member? I would rather say that I just drew my insipration from semitic languages (to a certain extent), but that is it. I would say it is also very personal. Monoliteral roots sound hard, but cool. So ...

Re: Semitic conlang

I thought this was a conlang in the semitic family, but the grammar that you've teased says otherwise. You mean to say that this language uses the triliteral root system? I look forward to seeing how you've employed it. Yeah, you're right. It is kind of Semitic. Actually, what we could consider as ...

Semitic-inspired conlang

Hi, I have been creating a Semitic-based conlang for a while now, so I thought I would display it on the CBB to have some feedback. I can talk about its phonology and a few other things, but it is not going to be that complete. At least for now. Also I am not really used to employ computers and stuf...

Re: Australian

I don't want to get the thread too off-topic, but this is silly. Loanwords aren't such a terrible thing, nor is Germanic vocabulary inherently more understandable or expressive than Romance vocabulary. Your personal opinions about French do not affect its level of prestige in general. Pardon me. It...

To the conlang lexicon above: It's a nice beginning, but your journey is nowhere near the end. These words above are just a few stones of a pathway to a well-developed conlang.

Re: Australian

Maybe not now but back when the Royal Family was French speaking it certainly was. It was certainly prestigious enough to make that scene from Henry V where he tries to woo Catherine in English risible, because Henry would have certainly been able to converse well in French and would have done so, ...

Re: Australian

This is a joke perhaps? French (or Anglo-Norman) was the prestige language for centuries in England. It's still on the Royal coat of arms! And French borrowings occur in fields where French is still considered prestigious, like arts, cuisine, etc. Meh. To me French is not prestigious. I mean it sur...

Re: Germanic Conlang

It is a start indeed, but I think you should write down some more precise features of your language and share them with us. It is a Germanic conlang after all. I can only be thrilled by this.

Re: Australian

This is also my thinking. AU English would be a prestige language, and therefore probably wouldn't have any influence from non prestigious languages. I think the sound changes are fine as it is. Well sometimes, prestigious languages can be influenced by non prestigious langages. Look at English bei...
