...that Adjuvilo, although it was a fully developed language, was merely created to help create dissent in the then-growing Ido movement?
...that Winston Churchill initially supported Basic English as an international language, but was put off when he was told that "blood, toil, tears and sweat" translates as "blood, hard work, eyewash and body water"?
...that Kēlen is a constructed language that has no verbs, but still is able to express anything?

Welcome to the WikiProject concerning Constructed languages. Our goal is to create and improve articles about this subject.

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

Scope[edit]

Generally[edit]

  • Observing, maintaining, organising and improving all articles on Wikipedia relating to constructed languages.
  • Providing a reliable source of information regarding constructed languages, available on request.

Specifically[edit]

  • Expanding and improving articles about conlangs, especially notable ones;
  • Making sure that all current conlang articles meet certain criteria, such as:
  • Discussing a list of conlangs that arguably deserve articles (the "Things you can do" section on Portal:Constructed languages could serve as a starting point);
  • Nominating non-notable and/or non-verifiable articles for deletion; moving them to the FrathWiki if warranted;
  • NPOVing conlang articles added by self-interested creators; and
  • Reviving a more viable policy proposal from WP:CONLANG.
