Having had some experience in conlanging for a while, I thought i could give another 2 cents of my ideas, thoughts and general tips for conlangers. It will be updated as i think of new things
- Order of work
- This one is something I would stress very much in the begining,
for your own sake and to save yourself problems in the future you
should start in this order.
- Phonology: decied what sounds you wants and dont want, what is equal to what and what isnt? What nyances does your conlang make between sounds and which doesnt? Korean dont differ between B and P but P and Ph and other languages makes further distinctions others make less. Dont be too scared about the sound amount as long as you dont throw things in randomly, keep an order of things whe…

As this is a thing most conlangers fear i thought I could make a blog post about my thoughts on it with additional input.
Some think a kitchen sink language (KSL) is a conlang with just alot of features in it and have loads of various sounds.
That cannot possibly be it because there are loads of languages with lots of wierd things stuck togather into what could be considered a mess but have an inherent structure in the language. Same goes with sounds, there are natural languages with tons of consonants and tons of vowels again seemingly randomly put togather. And most certainly none of us conlangers would in their sane mind call a perfectly natural language a KSL now would we? Of course not, thats absurd. Going to a native speaker and say "…
Hey everyone, I know some of you, me especially, may be very strict about giving out personal details, however I was just wondering where everyone came from, country wise? I am from downunder in Australia. Also I just wanted to know because no one seems to be online when I am, which can sometimes be annoying.
Does anyone here, except myself and Zelos, speak more than one language? I asume there would be a few of us.
It would be good to find out when the majority of us are online as then we can get some real discussion between everyone going about conlangs (as nothing is better than other people's view, even though it might not be what we want criticism helps) instead of having discussions where I, and maybe some others, have to wait a day t…
After a slight mishatch with the skin it is back to normal.
Though I do think we should be opening the idea of changing the skin and icon of the site, or not.

Hi! I am Atizablaze and I will use this blog page to tell you about my first conlang experiences. I hope you forgive me if my english has grammar or spelling mistakes because my mother tounge is not english, it is spanish. But I will do my best effort here:
First of all, I want to say that being a rookie conlanger is some of the best things that have happened to me in my whole life, it has been very funny, very useful and it has helped me to learn other languages like polish and esperanto. Because of this, I have been able to learn them more easily and I have got some fame because of this experience. Why do I say that?
- the first language I began doing is Katian language and you have no idea of how much has the Katian language changed since I…
