Lango is a constructed language, created in 2003. This project is a try to create a new language of international communication.
The phonetical system of Lango consists of 5 vowel and 20 consonant phonemes, the letters are based on the Roman alphabet. The stress always falls on the last second syllable of the word. Diacritics are not used, but there are letter combinations for one single phoneme.
- Nouns do not have articles.
- Adjective and participles do not have plural form.
- There is no gerund, participle are used instead.
The system of verb consists of 3 moods (indicative, imperative and conditional), perfective and imperfective aspects and active and passive voices. The participle has only 2 forms: past tense in the passive voice and present tense in the active voice. In wordformation the conversion, affixation and composition are widely used. The syntax system of Lango is adopted from English and has the fixed word order: adjunct, subject, predicate, object. The vocabulary is mainly based on Latin and Romanic elements. Parts of speech are also similar to those in Romanic languages. Relations between words are built via prepositions. As in Esperanto, every part of speech has the unique ending.
