Creator Vanege

Langugu was designed to be the easiest language to learn for the average human. Since English is the most studied language, almost all words are directly derived from English using a simple and predictable algorithm. This assures minimal time wasted into memorization, and immediate readability for non speakers.

The vocabulary of a learner is never limited by some sort of "creator authority" from the author since anyone can import any word from English using the algorithm. (Although using the word already in use by the community is preferred to be understood.) The userbase owns the language.

The grammar is largely taken from Esperanto, but is very simplified. What works well was kept, what does not or is redundant was replaced. Like Esperanto, Langugu is agglutinative. So instead of learning English words such as skolu (school), you can use and understand word-root combinations like lernplasu (learn-place).

Langugu has evident part-of-speech marking with the last vowel of each word:

  • -u for all nouns
  • -i for all modifiers (an adjective if placed before a noun, otherwise an adverb)
  • -a for verbs
  • -o for others

The language (as a design project) is finished and stable since almost a year. No "breaking change" will happen, that means you can learn Langugu now and your knowledge won't become obsolete. For example, a word-root can be added, but not removed.

The initiator of Langugu decided to limit the number of arbitrary decisions to the minimal so consensus and acceptation is easier to achieve. Word classes are not closed. There is no arbitrary number of inflections. Anything that relates to nouns (number, definiteness...) and verbs (mood, tense, aspect) are expressed by modifiers (-i), and anyone can create modifiers adding -i to an existing or new word-root.

No rule is added in unscientific artistic gamble. Any new rule within the language have to appear naturally first in the usage of the Langugu-speaking community.

Langugu does not pretend to be perfect, that can't be proven since scientific data in interlinguistics is lacking. But Langugu holds some innovative hypothesis on how an easy auxiliary language could work.

Speaking community[]

A designed language is a human language only if it is spoken. Please consider joining the Langugu speaking community in Telegram so our adventure will help build even better auxiliary languages in future generations.

All informations about Langugu are on the official GitHub of Langugu. For now, the grammar is only described in Esperanto. This is actually intended in order to build a solid core of users with a limited amount of irregularities and errors coming from learning directly from English.
