Creating A Language: Introduction ::Links Out::
Creating a Language
I suspect that a lot of authors of science fiction and fantasy wish they could create a language. As a writer and a linguistics student, it's inevitable that I would try to make one. It's definitely not easy, and takes a lot of dedication if you really want to make it go places. But you don't have to make a whole usable language in order to make your fantasy or sci-fi world have a bit more credibility--there are a lot of benefits to creating even just a phonological system and lexicon.
Now, creating a language is a srs biznis. So I'm going to take these lessons srsly. If you're the type of person who is satisfied with scrambling your fingers across the keyboard to make up words and calling it good (like a certain author whose name starts in "Sal" and ends in "vatore"), you'll find these lessons tedious and unnecessary (though you would be wrong).
If you want a language with some believability, these tutorials are for you. But you will have to put some t

Let's pretend
Hey, look at this world
This new exciting place
Let's you and I pretend
We belong here
Get away from all the
Demands and stresses
Of everyday life
All's just fun and games
Happy times
Slowly growing with us into
More believable
Stranger but more familiar
A little drama can't hurt
A little strife
A full fledged opera
An exciting game
Were we prepared for what it became?
With each passing day
Words grew louder
Instability prouder of lacking sense
And over and over
We conjure evidence to support-
Our game is good
It's progressing just the way it should.
Every once in a while
I have to admit
I'm frightened by my ability to sit
And tune out all else
To become someone else
To be somewhere other than I am
When I barely feel a human's touch
Can it be said I dream too much?
Growing ever distant from the world
Day by day
I watch the life I knew falling away
But still... somehow
Choose to stay?
Why does it always turn out that way?
Hey, look at this world
This old familiar place
