Conlang Resources


Welcome, web visitor, to my constructed languages page. Here you will find various constructed languages (conlangs) and the constructed worlds (con-worlds) in which they are spoken. There are also various other resources for conlangers.


The trail to Fara, the Land of Fire, where the conlang Tatari Faran is spoken, is now open. Watch your step; lava may be flowing underneath the ground.


If you are looking for that intrepid conlang called Ebisédian or the constructed world where it is spoken, enter through the Portal to the Ferochromon.

Conlang Mailing List

If you want to find out more about conlangs and conlangers, join the CONLANG mailing list. All are welcome. But please, no soliciting, especially not of auxlangs (international auxilliary languages). You're welcome to discuss auxlangs, just don't try to solicit for them.

Conlang Tools

People who dabble with conlangs all the time frequently also dabble in constructed scripts—writing systems to go along with their conlangs. Those who dabble in scripts long enough may find out that LaTeX is perhaps one of the best typesetting systems available for dealing with odd and unusual writing systems.

The following LaTeX-related tools may be of interest to these people.

IPA Charts and Transcriptions

The X-SAMPA ASCII transcription of the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) is one of the widely-used schemes on the CONLANG mailing list for describing the phonology of conlangs.

Here is a backup copy of the X-SAMPA chart.

There is also a modified version of the X-SAMPA chart, known as CXS (Conlang X-SAMPA), also widely used on the CONLANG mailing list. Among its most notable modifications is using & to represent æ instead of the awkward {.

Here is the backup copy of the CXS chart.

Henrik Theiling also has HTML versions of the IPA charts, along with some descriptions of IPA, X-SAMPA, and CXS. He also has machine-readable versions of the charts, for those programmers among you who would like to write scripts or programs to process the IPA charts in some way.

Leipzig Glossing Rules

The Leipzig Glossing Rules are a set of conventions used by linguists in giving interlinears of text from a particular language. It's a good idea to use these conventions when making interlinears of your conlangs, so that it's easier for people familiar with linguistics to read.
