General Conlanging Information

Join the CONLANG-L mailing list or visit the Language Creation Society homepage to learn more about conlanging.

I also maintain a FAQ, a list of links, and some translation exercises (single sentences, full texts, and word lists).

Wait, what is a conlang??

A conlang is a constructed (or invented) language, like Esperanto, Klingon, or Quenya ("Elvish" from The Lord of the Rings).

This website is about my own constructed language, Asha'ille. It's part of a fictional fantasy world, spoken by an alien species of sentient felines. The language itself is an a priori naturalistic language. The rest of this site documents my language and the culture related to it.

Other Info

I've written a few small utilities scripts to help my conlanging habit:

Flavored Word Generator
a Ruby script that generates words based on a wordlist
Interlinearizer
the Perl script that generates the HTML interlinear pages in the Writing section.
lex2xml
converts from SIL Shoebox .lex format to XML
lexicon-update.sh
script that uses lex2xml, dictionary.xsl, and thesaurus.xml to transform my Shoebox .lex lexicon into the detailed dictionary and thesaurus pages

By the way, the "logo" image at the top of the page says "Arth," [ɑɹθ], short for "Arthaey" ['ɑɹθej], written in the kateinu yiréb.
