The CBB Conlang Census

Posted: 26 May 2015 16:55
by elemtilas
And in those days when Caesar was king at Reme, all the world was called to be accounted...

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

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.

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

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).

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))

Vrkhazhian: Artlang, highly fusional, weakly agglutinative; altworld oriention.
Zirka: Codelang / artlang; a right-to-left rune/glyph-based language. While it is largely a language "cast" (or "mask"?), it has its own simple grammar. The author hopes to eventually make it a true conlang that stands on its own.
Most of my invented languages don't have a thread here. All of these are a priori except where otherwise noted, although some take inspiration from natlang phonologies or alphabets.
  • Hecathver/Häħadhvar (2012): fusional, tripartite alignment (ergative identical to nominative except for personal pronouns), no genders, three numbers (3rd is mass plural). My main conlang and the only one I'm fluent in, currently counting about 1,000 words, mainly created from low-level wannabe jokes (take a word in a natlang, change it a bit so it looks Hecathver, and then give it the exact opposite meaning or one that is related in a "fun" way). Has a nice conscript.
  • Hajás (2016): made to look a bit like Hungarian, harmonic, agglutinative (only up to 2 root morphemes), uses a lot of suffixes for pretty much anything. Has a badass conscript based on stylish curved lines.
  • Híntrené (late 2013): Norse-looking phonology and spelling, three classes of verbs (static, dynamic and modal/auxiliar), seven cases and no genders, but words are declined differently depending on their ending. Marks noun definition synthetically. Made to have historically had a distinction between long and short vowels that has now collapsed into entirely different sounds, primarily diphthongs. Spoken in a Legend of Zelda-based conworld, Híntren, for which I'm currently developing a video game (outside the CBB I'm a computer programmer).
  • Emagnás (2013): a conlang with ejectives, a very strict word order, 5 cases, 2 numbers (definite, used after a numeral, and indefinite, used alone), and 4 declensions depending on the word ending (-es, -um, -V and everything else). I abandoned it because most of the times it's incredibly difficult to remember the correct word order (it changes a lot depending on what meaning you need to convey). Still this feature is the coolest one to me.
  • Ranse (2014): my first attempt at a polysynthetic conlang. It features monosyllabic roots, mostly with no pre-determined part-of-speech assigned (they can be nouns, adjectives, verbs or adverbs depening on context and position); the meaning of words is thus determined by their syllables. I didn't take into account, though, that dividing a word in syllables isn't very easy if there is no rule regarding how syllables can be formed in the first place, so I ended up adding lots and lots of apostrophes to mark syllable boundaries and then abandoned it altogether.
  • Darezh (2016): latest attempt at a polysynthetic conlang, but this one has strict rules as to how syllables can be formed, thus it works much better than Ranse. The rest is pretty much the same as for Ranse itself, I even recycled most of the dužbet'i (ideograms for roots) and the entire rajmbet'i system (alphabet for endings, kind of like okurigana). Used to have clicks, but I can't pronounce them well, so I recycled their characters for a bunch of affricates instead.
  • Simpel (2017): work in progress isolating language with little to no concept of inflection. No gender, number, tense, mood or anything like that, except aspects (might get rid of those soon). By pure coincidence it uses all and only the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet.
  • I have lots of other conlangs that are currently work-in-progress or anyways not complete enough to be listed here, namely Lynel, Ergar, Marsål (spoken on Mars), Vuida (based on Finnish), Akhref (based on Arabic) and Noxhívar (I lost the folder with all its data, should have been cognate with Hecathver). Finally, there is my first ever conlang, dating back to 2003 (I was 8), Fratedegnolo (pathetic name based off "francese" - French, "tedesco" - German and "spagnolo" - Spanish, the three languages it derives its lexicon from). It's mostly complete garbage since I wasn't very good with languages back then.

Iroko: Artlang, agglutinative, tripartite-alignment, double-marking, VOS word order.
Søsøzatli: Engelang (2013); a not very naturalistic experiment on many things.

Dijo: Mostly isolating a priori personal language with OSV order (2016); 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. Inyi: Somewhere between artlang, auxlang & engelang (maybe?) (2016); highly agglutinative & slightly polysynthetic; no geopoetical orientation.
Its purpose is an exploration of language creation to gain knowledge and understanding in the art. vodlem (2018): isolating/agglutinative a priori, OSV order with Active morphosyntactic alignment. The language accompanies the people of invod - a limbo-esque realm that's the setting for a DnD campaign I am writing. The language is spoken by all inhabitants and so the players/adventurers will need to decipher the language over time in order to get by, and probably also speak some of it to communicate with natives. The goal for it is to be pretty simple from a grammar perspective such that it wouldn't take excessive time and effort to note down the grammar amongst the players.

Bàsupan (2017): agglutinative, largely SOV word order with tri-consonantal roots, complex nominative-ergative alignment, pharyngeal consonants, an extensive comparative system, and a native script. Bàsupan is widely spoken in mainland Bàsupan, and a prestige language of the region surrounding it.

Lohondla (2018): fusional, largely SOV word order with a synactic ergative alignment, pronominal split-S alignment, and nominal nominative alignment with object pronouns infixing in verbs and more than a dozen ways to negate a verb.

I have plenty of other, very incomplete conlangs such as Rh'ae, Brythónnyc Claire, Oddúhath Claire, Molvanian, Stellendor, Chavajau, Kou (Äshollkovsi), and Koe'ez. These may be posted here in the future if they develop to the point they can be considered a conlang.

Rireinutire: Artlang (2011); a priori & mostly e posteriori; nominative-accusative alignment, SOV, agglutinative, head-final, pro-drop, four genders (rational, feminine, masculine, inanimate), plural only marked in pronouns, 12 noun cases, telicity distinction in object cases, 5 vowels & 12 consonants, native syllabary.; geopoetical orientation: Rireinu, the homeworld of a spacefaring civilisation somewhere in the Milky Way galaxy. 4000+ words.
Griuskant: Heartlang/personal language (2014); agglutinative, SVO, direct trigger, head-final, alphabetic conscript; geopoetical orientation: conworld language.
Bargazian: Artlang; Indo-European; spoken in central Russia; forms its own branch of IE Ranian: Artlang; highly agglutinative, N-A, non-IE Charinese: Artlang; somewhat agglutinative; Caspian Sea region Shesti: Artlang; Indo-European; non-agglutinative; alternate world
Rodinian: Auxlang (though feels more like an Artlang!) (2006); intended for international communications
Kâzaron: Artlang (2015); somewhere between fusional and agglutinative; SOV. Japanese influenced grammar. About 125 words so far and 30 phonemes.

The Languages of the World of Fuhe:

Pieveian: Artlang (2016); Western Romance language, spoken in Switzerland Ydtobogan: language family (2014); 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, clusivity distinction in the first person plural, etc. There are other common features, but they're either insignificant IMO or likely to become uncommon.

Sĩburãw: Grammatical and logographic writing system. It is not a spoken language. It uses ideograms, but it can be written with kanji and katakana as well.

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)

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):

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: 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.

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

Haneko: 2012, Artlang, Mildly Synthetic, Conworld-focused

Tazaric: 2014, Artlang, Isolating/Ablaut/Tonal, Conworld-focused

*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!

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; 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.

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 ... _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.
