Fjallandic is a partial worldbuilding/partial thought experiment on how a language or dialect of Old Norwegian might arise in (partial) isolation. Fjalland is a fictional region northeast of Trondheim that, like Elfdalian, preserves several extinct Old Norse features while innovating new features.
Some of the features of Fjallandic are discussed below:
Like Old Norse, Modern Fjallandic has only three regular vowels in unstressed positions – /a i u/. Most traces of Old Norse unstressed vowels have reduced to schwa or syncoped entirely. These new vowels are instead from sequences that contain two similar vowels and either a nasal consonant or a dental fricative in between. (This was taken from ED with permission.)
Like Swedish and Norwegian, Fj…Read more >
Mission: The goal is to construct a naturalistic, a-posteriori conlang, derived from 10th century Old Norse and spoken in Greenland, after centuries of isolation from mainland Europe but reoccurring contact with Native Americans. I intend there to be two main dialects, both of which correspond to the two major historical settlements in Greenland by the Norse: The Western Settlement and the Eastern Settlement. Because it is known that the Norse Greenlanders were in contact with the Inuit, I expect the language to be moderately influenced by that language, possibly taking in a number of loan words or grammatical features. However, I am hesitant to completely supplant the grammar of Greenlandic with that of the Inuit-Eskimo languages. As this…Read more >
On a scale of most to least spacefaring, my species are: the Ghayn, the Cittus, the Patronans, the Chesnon, the Humans, the Aethos, and the Lameans.
The Ghayn represent first contact for nearly every species.
Humans have met: the Ghayn, Cittus, Chesnon, Patronans, and Aethos, in that order.
Patronans have met: Lameans, Ghayn, Cittus, Chesnon, Humans, and Aethos, in that order.
The Ghayn are seen as gods mostly, and they don't like to be too involved, though they are on good standing with every species. The Patronans get along well with all. The Aethos, Lameans, Humans, and Chesnon tend to be mistrustful of the other species in the loose alliance. The Cittus don't like to be involved in interplanetary affairs but will interact kindly when neces…

Some think English is like French with all their contorted spellings. But, notice the vowels or diphthongs in English words like tear, pear, and learn, as well as pour, tour, mouse, and sour. You get the picture. French isn't like this way. French is more consistent.Read more >

Hey guys, it's almost time to start the Modern Slavlang Challenge! (It starts a little bit after the proto-lang challenge ends)
Therefore, I'm reannouncing it so that it will show up under the popular blog posts. (If there's a way to do that without creating a whole nother page, please let me know.
