The following list of online conlanging communities is provided as a public service by the Language Creation Society. Inclusion in the list does not constitute an endorsement of any one of these over any other; however, only those with an active level of posting have been included.
Good for novices all the up to professional linguists. There is a FAQ page at nellardo. As the name suggests, it is devoted to those constructed languages that are based on or inspired by the Germanic languages. The possibilities are numerous: a revivied version of Gothic, an alternative spelling for English, a pan-Germanic language understandable to any native speaker of a Germanic language… You name it!
Anyone who is interested in Germanic linguistics, created a Germanic conlang, or hopes to create it one day, is sincerily invited to participate.
We are a very eclectic group of people who are enthusiastic about conlangs and concultures. We have teenagers, students, professionals, and so on — everyone is welcome. One of the if not the most active conlang-related forums on the Internet. An excellent resource for students of Klingon of all levels. Mailing lists available from the LCS are available at lists.

To make your own language you need to decide on: The phonology - the sounds of the language. The grammar - the framework of the language. The lexicon - the words and dictionary of the language. Enter a title in the box below to start creating your language.
It is a predominantly prefixing agglutinative language which has various polysynthetic tendencies. It is notable for its fusional morphology that makes significant use of ablaut and consonant gradation. Luluvo is an ergative-absolutive language with a topic-comment and SOV structure. It is a fusional language and utilizes inflections and verbal conjugations. As the native language of the Kingdom of Rushi, Luluvo sees use as the official language in public correspondence.
International Phonetic Alphabet.Posted this the other day and everyone wanted more info from the carver. Got a very vague response but possibly a hint? Down in the comments below.
I have a table I let people carve into and someone carved this. I have no idea what it means. My friend found this on a table in his step-father's house. Any idea what language this could be? Found a transcript from an old conlang I created at the age of 12 in the back of a school book. I didn't know what I was doing. A sentence in the Jyn script, a new conlang I've been working on.
Critics and pieces of advice are welcomed! Conlang guessing game. These 4 paragraphs all say the same thing, but are written in Muric, Absat, Cilthic and Iltantukaisavuara. Guess which is which! Since we're all in the movie poster spirit right now, here's the original Back to the Future movie poster in Kalluti! No way! I made an Alphabet for my conlang. Have any suggestions? Trying to help a friend.
Does anyone recognize this language? Numbers in my Conlang, Ptufk. Here's a nice gif of our flag. The power of programming. A song about a painful love story. Version 5 of the Tolianem script for one of my oldest conlangs, Razchijian! My first official Atiel translation. Trying out a brand new abugida for one of my much older conlangs, Mahibu! We're Making a Nupishin Textbook! Idea for changing sentence structure based on speaker's purpose.
Various mi scripts - new cursive variant! Did some more art in my new still unnamed script. First draft of the phonological features of my conlang! Inspired by a post made a month ago, I made a translation of a short comic.It has bothered me for quite some time that J.
Tolkien did not develop a complete system of kinship terminology in either Quenya or Sindarin, and some of the words we do have are outdated Qenya and Gnomish which are linguistically incongruous with the later lexicon, so I have taken it upon myself to invent one.
The rest are all constructed from preexisting words and elements in Quenya and Sindarin. I have not introduced any new elements to either language. As for descendants, grandchildren are distinguished as grandchildren from sons or daughters. Nieces are distinguished between brother-daughters and sister-daughters while nephews are distinguished between brother-sons and sister-sons.
It also inflects for both subject and object, for example r- is 1st person subject, and i- is 2nd person object. A movie I spent a good piece of time working on a year ago is out on Netflix today. As a result, I worked with the actors in person both leading up to shooting, and then all during principal photography, from October of to February of I did want to mention a couple of specific things, though.
On the very first day of shooting, we filmed a scene with Chris Browningwho plays a human. Mind, the other actors had been working on this stuff for like a month, plus had the foreknowledge that they were going to be performing in a created language well before that. Plus, Orcish is much tougher to pronounce than Elvish, imo. It was a tremendous piece of work, and he earned my respect.
Guy is awesome.
I also wanted to give a shout out to Brad William Henke. He plays Dorghu, and has the most Orcish dialogue. Also I just want to recognize Lucy Fry. She basically heard the line once and then evidently had it forever, and also never messed up when performing. I was there for onset dialect coaching, but when it was just her performing, I basically showed up and chilled and ate too much junk food.
She was automatic. She had the hardest job—and the best costumes. Finally, the art department are my heroes. He was always smiling and always happy to chat with whoever was about. He really livened up some long, long shoots.
This is his thing, and I think he did a great job with it. Thanks for reading! Progress working on this massive sigil painting. With most of the lines figured out and planned, the next step is to write and translate incantations and inscriptions into Sul'voth and then adding those on. A conlang in which there are genders corresponding to each of the Pokemon types.

They spoke their own language, but as the Russian Empire grew, many learned to speak Russian, as well. When Russia began a campaign to exterminate the Orcs, they emigrated to many places, including the United States. The Orcish language had an old, ancient script Vukht which was replaced by a variant of the Cyrillic alphabet. After the emigration, the Orcs reclaimed their old writing system and began using it once again with some modified Cyrillic letters used for sounds not present in the language when the Vukht was originally in use.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Logopoeist is a random word-generation system for conlangers creators of constructed languages which conforms to user-specified phonotactic rules as well as user-specified conditional probability distributions to control phoneme frequencies.
A sample configuration for a strict-CV language with vowel harmony is provided in test. An incremental Earley chart parser is used to keep track of all of the possible partial-parses that satisfy the syllable structure rules given whatever phonemes have been generated so far; the parser state is examined to produce a combined distribution for all possible phonemes that could be added and still produce a valid parse, weighted by the probability of each partial parse in the Earley chart at that position.
The n-gram model is then used to determine what distribution of phonemes would be allowed in the same position given the previous context. These two distributions are then intersected, and a random phoneme is selected from the resulting joint distribution to fill in that slot, which then further constrains the possible parses and n-gram environments for the next position.
Word boundaries are produced thus terminating the productino of one word by considering the relative total probability of all complete parses vs.
Several possible situations can arise that result in a failed production- a state where there are no possible phonemes that can be added, but the word also isn't complete according to the syllable structure rules. These include things like disjoint distributions produced by the n-gram and syllable structure models, production of a word that is too short or too long compared to the limits set by the user, or production of a duplicate word that's already been seen before.
In any of these cases, Logopoeist will use recursive back-tracking; the parser state is rewound, the last produced phoneme is discarded and removed from the distribution so that it cannot be selected for the same environment again, and Logopoeist tries again with a different randomly selected phoneme or, in the case of a too-short word, the word boundary is discarded and the system starts the next-phoneme selection process for the first time.
This guarantees that the word generator will make progress and produce new output in finite time, without retracing failed paths that it had already explored, while still matching whatever number of output words were requested; i. Additionally, the recursive backtracking strategy allows Logopoeist to detect when it has completely exhausted the finite number of options permitted in a certain range, and inform you of that fact, rather than freezing up while continuing to look for more options that don't exist.
Unfortunately, however, it cannot detect infinite grammars- syllable structure rules that do not permit any finite words. If you're not careful, and feed it an infinite grammar with no maximum word length specified, it will loop forever if a maximum word length is specified, it will helpfully inform you that no valid words exist in the given range.
The system does start to slow down eventually, due to increased need for backtracking, after generating large numbers of unique words. For practical purposes, however, it is quite fast.
For example, it can generate all possible 8-letter words allowed by the sample configuration file in about 15 seconds, and then helpfully inform you that there are no more valid words of that length.
Logopoeist uses a simple domain-specific programming language to describe the allowed shapes of words in its config files. The LGP language has three kinds of statements:. Variable declarations let you give names to sets or classes of characters, so that you can use them multiple times in the phonotactic rules. Variable declarations have the form. Character class variables always begin with a hash symbol. Literal character classes have the form. Word Syntax rules describe the high-level phonotactic structure of a language in terms of a probabilistic context-free grammar.
As with character classes, the frequency specification is optional, and defaults to 1 if not specified; in this case, it specifies how frequently a particular substitution rule will be applied when more than one is available for the same syntax variable. The left-hand symbol for the first syntax rule in a configuration file will be used as the starting symbol for the probabilistic grammar.
Conditional Probability rules are used to manipulate the frequency of certain phonemes in particular contexts, given by the two preceding phonemes in a given word. They have the general form. The leading underscore is optional; if present, it indicates a word boundary.
The frequencies of the conditioning classes are ignored, and they are used to generate conditioning n-grams from all combinations of phonemes that can be selected from each class in order i. The conditional distribution to the right of the arrow is assigned to all positions following any conditioning n-gram derived from the current rule. A variant on conditional probability rules can be used to indicate that certain phonemes are disallowed in specific position.
These have the form.
Note the differently shaped arrow-! In these rules, frequencies are ignored in both conditioning and conditional classes; members of the conditional class are assigned zero probability after any conditioning n-grams derived from these rules, overriding whatever other distributions they might have had due to other rules.Conlang is a mailing list for discussing constructed and artificial languages. Discussions often include linguistical features and details about natural and constructed languages.
The focus is on technical discussion and personal preferences and views of our enthusiastic conlangers rather than on advocacy, especially of international auxiliary languages IALswhich are better discussed on the Auxlang list instead.
