Kankonian now has 52,500 words.

Also:

Kankonian: Artlang (1996); a priori, agglutinative; geopoetical orientation; 50000 words: from the planet of a spacefaring people.

Should read:

Kankonian: Artlang (1996); a priori, agglutinative; 52500 words; geopoetical orientation: from the planet of a spacefaring people.

Faloch: West Germanic Posteriori, Diachronic Experiment, Althistory

Evolved from old high German around 1300AD.

Example
I have made a Conlang.
Ech hobën gamocht ën Konstspraich.
/εx hɔbən gamɑxt ən kɔnstspʀaix/.

I'd like you to remove Kauzasian for now, given that I'm in the process of making so many changes the current information wouldn't be at all relevant and it's no longer called that. Even if I keep at it and build it back up again quickly it'd be a while before I posted anything substantive.

I'd like to think Pieveian is presentable now, so I'll put in a couple links here: CBB CWS

It's not neart as much as some of the other ones listed here, but it's the most I have on a conlang that I've bothered to post.

Some info about it: Pieveian (Jan. 2016) is a Western Romance language (whose more precise classification isn't as clear) meant to be spoken near northern Italy or Switzerland. A notable feature is that the "hard/soft" distinction typical of <c> and <g> in romlangs applies to <t d s z x n l> as well.

EDIT: I'd also like you to add the Ydtobogan language family (2014), which I don't have any specific links for, but I do have some general information. It's my first attempt at a language family. Most of the languages are characterized by large vowel inventories (usually at least eight vowels), fusional morphology, duodecimal number system, noun case, the use of a question particle even in non-polar questions, an clusivity distinction in the first person plural, etc. There are other common features, but they're either insignificant IMO or likely to become uncommon.
I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.

I think it's about time I get Dijo on here.


Dijo: (2016) Mostly isolating a priori personal language with OSV order. Uses a logographic script.
The aim is to make a usable language to teach to a small indeterminate group and create a very small community that can aid with expansion of the language.

I don't think so. An abugida places primary importance on consonants, and vowels are secondary. This conscript is more like Hangul in that vowels and consonants are equally important. I've heard Hangul called an alphabet, but I think syllabic alphabet would be a more descriptive term. So that's why I used it to describe my conscript as well.

I don't know what's Omniglot's criteria, but Dezinaa is clearly making a distinction here between an Abugida, that is, primary consonant glyphs with secondary vowel diacritics, versus what he calls a syllabic alphabet, which seems to be vowels and consonants having the same status, which constitutes an alphabet, but while the glyphs are organized in syllabic blocks, hence the ' syllabic' label.

I also agree tha Hangeul is an alphabet, BTW.

When it comes to real-world writing systems Hangeul and Pahawh Hmong fits that description.

You're thinking Alphasyllabary. These are the best type of writing systems. The top list is:
  1. Alphasyllabary
  2. Logography
  3. Syllabary
  4. Abugida
  5. Alphabet
  6. Abjad

I don't think Kuvian is quite up to being included quite yet (it languishes while I focus on world-building), but it's in my signature, as it were.

It'll get there one day, I hope! When it does, please do let us know so it can be included!
