I mean if you're going to have a heavily Chinese influenced conlang, complete with tones and everything, at least have the audacity to use Chinese characters like that Japanese one.


They tried and it worked fairly well, but the creator must have chickened out, what with all the effort it would have taken.

At least they tried being creative with it what with all the new characters for words that already had Chinese characters

I've always been a fan of this Chinese-influenced script. The creator didn't feel like they had to stick with pictographs; they just made their own from bits and pieces and forcing character parts together. The Chinese conlanger would look at it with complete horror, but I think it just ends up being such an interesting deconstruction and creative way to work with a predecessor conscript.

Tangut is the best! Whoever invented it rocks! [B)]

Spoiler: show
I actually prefer Tangut to actual Chinese, most likely due to the familiarity-breeds-contempt principle.

Hmm, if I ever get round to making a script for Áánene... *Des's ambition grows a new head*

And instead of creating something truly unique when it came to the conworld they just had all of the languages become endangered due to British imperialism. Really? England conquered an entire continent? Seems unlikely

Don't even get me started on Poland... :mrred:

Basque, a language, despite being so close to Spain is almost nothing like Spanish except for the vowels. How did you do it, Basque? How?

Clearly, the creator of Romagnol doesn't know much about phonology. You can't have /θ ð ʂ ʐ/ but not have /s z/. That just doesn't happen.

Nahuatl, created by a guy who chose a VSO word order just to be different, yet it doesn't follow a lot of the rules that VSO languages normally do. Nahuatl has an animacy distinction while the majority of VSO languages have a masculine and feminine gender. Not to mention Nahuatl is agglutinating/polysynthetic while the other VSO languages are fusional or isolating. Oh, and Nahuatl only has singular and plural forms while Ancient Hebrew, Arabic, Scottish Gaelic and Hawaiian all have dual numbers.

Pay more attention to what VSO languages do, Nahuatl creator.

If all natlangs are just bad conlangs, why is naturalistic artlanging such a hype?

So we can make better natlangs, of course!
