Richard Kennaway’s Constructed Languages List

Constructed languages are languages which are intended to be spoken by people, to people (as distinct from, say, programming languages), and which have been deliberately constructed rather than having evolved. There is a vast number of these, most of which are never used by anyone but their inventor. Only a handful have ever had a significant circulation, but with the advent of the World Wide Web, it now becomes possible to make one’s ideas available to all at little cost.

There are quite a few fascinating exercises, although the vast majority seem to be connection to some Star Trek fandom, a SF novel series or a fantasy trilogiad*.

 

 

*yes! a neologism, for those ubiquitous three-books that take an unendurable aount of energy to get through.
