READ THIS: You may notice as you read through that this may look odd or confusing. There are a lot of changes being made because I am making a writing system for this conlang. The changes are at such a high quantity to where I can't update this fast enough. Please be patient as I update. The Asgli Language was created on September 24th, 2020. The main goal for this language is to be as foreign with vocabulary as possible, but still easy to maintain and use.

Classification and Dialects[]

Asgli is a conlang as the lexicon is made by me.

Currently, there is only one dialect of Asgli, Common Asgli. However, I may soon be making other dialects. Two asterisks mean that a word is rarely used.
