I guess I like naturalistic conlangs better


There are many different types of conlangs. Auxiliary languages (or auxlangs) are designed to facilitate international communication. They are called auxiliary languages because they are designed to be learned along with other languages. Their aim is to provide a common language to people who don’t have any other language in common.

Naturalistic conlangs on the other hand, are designed to emulate how natural languages work. Dothraki, High Valyrian, Klingon, Na’Vi and my own conlang Atlaans are examples of naturalistic conlangs. Natural languages tend to have irregular conjugation, multiple declensions and inconsistent orthography due to changes in the language that happen over time.

Naturalistic conlangs either come up with their own conjugations, or they come up with some older languages and evolve it in like with linguistics processes to its modern form. This is what David J. Peterson did for both Dothraki and High Valyrian. He came up with an older form, and then created the sound shifts and semantic changes that happened over time to create the modern version of the language

  1. I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This article posted at this site is in fact good.

  2. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

  3. This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    • Thank you so much 🙂 Last year, I just decided to start making content. I have always loved languages. I started working on the Languages of Fire and Ice wiki which collects information about the languages of the Game of Thrones series. Someone I met there added me on facebook and he was a part of the Omniglot Fan Club group on facebook. I joined it straight away, and I have been a part of the language community ever since.

      I eventually made the Silly Linguistics group and the Steve the vagabond and silly linguist page on facebook. Yesterday I thought it is time for a silly linguistics website 🙂
