I assumed Frislander was talking about a posteriori Indo-Aryan conlangs.

Well, Indo-Anatolian actually. With some Indo-Aryan adstrate influence.

In-world it's Oriental Neo-Puntic and rather predates the Central Neo-Puntic that will eventually give rise to Sandho-Aryan and thus to the Sandhic languages and the modern Hellado-Sandhic and Judeo-Hellado-Sandhic dialects.

So, I've already introduced myself, but since I haven't been active here for some years, I am going to do it again!

I am from Italy and my family is from Wenzhou in China. My native language is Italian and my Chinese is work in progress. I also speak the Wenzhou dialect which is famous in China for being unintelligible to all other Chinese dialects. I like a posteriori languages and since I am a kind-of a beginner, I only make conlangs related to natlangs I speak. I have made a romlang, but I don't consider it interesting enough to be shared on the internet. :mrgreen: On the other hand I will soon open an introduction thread for Tekian, this Chinese based conlang I am working on.

Welcome! Is Tekian a true Sinitic language derived from Middle Chinese or earlier or is it not based off of a historical derivation per se?

It split from Chinese sometime between 2000 BCE and 1000 BCE.
I did use this reconstruction of old Chinese, but I made Tekian split earlier and put some sound distinction that are not present in Old Chinese. For example the numerals 1 and 7 don't rhyme in Old Tekian.
The main reason why I made it split earlier was that Tekian has SOV word order, and I thought it was unlikely for a SVO language like Old Chinese to evolve into a SOV language, while on the other Chinese is likely to descend from a SOV language.

Hello, I'm Zekoslav.

I've been interested in languages (both conlangs and natlangs - I actually study linguistics [;)] ) for a long time, but only recently I managed to come up with something worth sharing.

Usually I make a posteriori languages, because I can't for the love of all that is holy ever decide how I want to name something. I've learned a lot about natlangs that way: I remember I had an idea to make a more conservative cousin of French, only to discover I had accidentally recreated old Occitan. [:D]
Languages:
:hrv: [:D], :bih: :srb: [;)], :eng: [:D], :fra: [:|], :lat: [:(], :deu: [:'(]

A linguistics enthusiast who would like to make a conlang, but can't decide what to call what.

Oh good, I like interesting a-posteriori stuff, particularly non-Indo-European things (although I'd be very happy with interesting takes on Indo-Iranian actually, we don't see many of those!). I look forward to seeing you grow and develop as a conlanger.

Hello. I am back! (I came back when I accidentally clicked a bookmark)
This website looks different (but better!)
If you don't remember me, I have researched linguistics on Wikipedia, finding my love for linguistics when I created a modified alphabet for English.
I realise this may be misplaced, but I felt this post was necessary.
