I've started constructing a language
« on: January 11, 2013, 11:54 pm »
...again lol. This is probably the sixth or seventh time in my life that I've tried to conlang successfully. It'll probably fall flat on its face like all the others, but I really like conlanging. I'm making this simple (I call it a "constructed proto-pidgin" to reflect such simplicity) and easy to learn (don't know why; nobody will want to learn it lol). I have a few things already set up:

isi - language
azh - person
az - people
jarawa - coconuts
jarawah - coconut
faz - family

isiSpanish - Spanish language
azhMoroccan - Moroccan person
azCanadian - Canadian people
fazWalton - Walton family

--

Do you understand?

A language isn't something that you can just artificially construct in a week, month, or even year. Naturally, languages form over hundreds, even thousands of years, out of a necessity of oral communication. The language tree is so diverse that you would need to be highly inventive to make a language that is not unreasonably closely based off of one or more languages, as well as having a huge amount of spare time merely compiling the tens of thousands of nouns, sentence forms, conjugations and whatnot.

Tolkien must've had a lot of time on his hands, then.

And Zamenhof...

And Stanley Unwin...

And the linguist who made Na'vi...

And every single conlanger in the history of mankind...

Also, did you not read the whole post? I said that I call it a "constructed proto-pidgin". A pidgin is a simple language that has between 200-500 words. Adding the proto- prefix to that implies that it's going to be even more simple and crude and perhaps even contains less words. I know that conlanging takes a long time, too. Even this will take lots of time, but I'm willing to invest that time into this.

Actually, in this language, "az" is pronounced like "Oz".

Pronunciation look like an issue here.
For fifty and nine he swam along just fine, a mind that’s trained to see, always would know what goes on inside, goes on in me.

Conlanging FTW.
