I want to learn someone's conlang

Postby WallOfStuff » 2013-10-30, 3:06

Not sure if this is the right section for this. But anyway, I've recently decided to go back into learning languages. One of my goals besides learning natlangs and possibly making a conlang is to learn a conlang as well. Rather than just pick one that's well-known among the language enthusiasts, I want to help someone on here by learning some of their conlang. Having another speaker can help find anything that needs to be fixed as well.

However, I'd like to learn a conlang from someone who at least sort of knows what they're doing. I prefer something that isn't a creole or heavily based on a particular natlang. Also, it'd be cool if we could talk on Skype or something similar, so we can have real-time conversations and stuff.

If interested in having another speaker of your conlang, send me a message or post here. :3

I'm not a fluent speaker of any of my conlangs but I could learn one of them along with someone else learning it :P Anyway, two of my conlangs could be used for this: one is Laefêvëši and the other is Harākti. The first one is an a priori language with extensive morphology and it's agglutinative. I have a page on FrathWiki about it and a few recordings, if you'd like to hear it. The second one is an a posteriori conlang, based off Proto-Indo-European. It has a moderately complex morphology, akin to Latin or Sanskrit (although probably less complicated). I have a page for it too, on Linguifex, and a recording of a short text. If you're interested, I can post the links. :)

Also, feel free to add me on Skype (nick: Ashucky). I'm always up for discussing conlangs or languages or whatever else in general. :)

I am in the process of creating my first very decent conlang. It is coming out very good! It is a pretty easy language to learn!

An yogeiya tas, evi stat eg Niđalosu opri or onšoem tog il yomakevu asiyo. Mo so oš tasita, an mo eg sravi i negau okvali, i anu koal os, moa šitamunu kendiša.

I'd offer but I have neither the time nor patience to teach anyone Niđalos. If you were really that keen I could send you the materials and answer questions when I'm around haha.

I'm also interested in learning a conlang. Aschucky, both your languages sound interesting. Do you mind posting some of the grammar?

If you want to learn something about Miwonša, I would love to show you what I have created. I really love my conlang and I think that it is not very difficult, although it has much inflection.

There are some pages available, if you go to the Link Your Conlangs topic (or you can see more about Harākti here and Laefêvëši here. I also have a quick introductory video about Laefêvëši on YouTube - you can watch it here. You should definitely check those out before trying anything with my conlangs - they aren't intended to be IAL's so don't expect simplicity. :P

Hello, if you wish to learn a conlang, i think there can be no easier that SostiMatiko, blog/Sost%20ematiko/systematic_language_at_work_cant_get_any_easier_b-1083.html
well, i suppose others have said the same about their own, you just read the funny story from the link given and judge for yourself.

sakao SostiMatika frasimo mit jadero! =it is a pleasure to talk in the Systematic (language) together with someone else!

Ive been working on my conlang for a while and learned the large majority of it, I would be glad to teach it to someone! XD Its called Kamitogo, and largely based on east and southeast Asian languages and a little bit of English.

I'd offer but I have neither the time nor patience to teach anyone Niđalos. If you were really that keen I could send you the materials and answer questions when I'm around haha.

Same thing still applies, but I feel compelled to update the text above since that is three years old.
