Conlanging: The Art of Crafting Tongues

The crowdfunding campaign for the documentary Conlanging: The Art of Crafting Languages just started. See Evildea's interview with the director!

    I like conlanging and I think that it is something to be encouraged. Since it's on the same topic, here is a link to a documentary about conlangs made by Ben Wood, the creator of Angos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVs5--zgANElist=LL-11xnQmN4-6TOLs5oC61QQindex=5

    The conlang that I am currently developing is basically an Esperantido whose primary aim to be less Eurocentric while simultaneously remaining easy to learn for Indo-European speakers. I call it "Newespero" (meaning "A New Hope"), hence Esperanto means "One who Hopes." I have been constructing it for four and a half months.


    I call it "Newespero" (meaning "A New Hope"),

    Why not call it Novespero?


    Mi foje partoprenis en filmado de filmeto pri artefaritaj lingvoj en la rusa: https://vk.com/video72595_176673 Ĝi estas en la rusa kaj montras kvenjan, Esperanton kaj tokiponon kiel ekzemplojn, rakontante ke ekzistas pluraj aliaj.


    I recently watched this and it's honestly one of the best Documentaries I've seen this year thus far. Very well done!
