  • Sally Caves (USA 2008) Conlang: Teonaht. Niffodyr tweluenrem lis teuim an. "The gods have retractable claws." I have worked on this language and its culture for about fifty years. The extensive webpages with drawings and samples of my script vanished when I abandoned GoDaddy, and will be restored on WordPress when I learn how to navigate it (help would be most welcome!). Teonaht is largely an a priori language with some lexical borrowings as its inhabitants mingle, clandestinely, with our own, but they remain largely isolated, and ever so slightly inhuman. I'm finishing a long novel devoted to them. Teonaht has some peculiar features, notably its OSV structure in formal writing and speaking (SOV in vernacular speech), and prefixing tense and aspect information on pronouns instead of the verbs. It makes a morphological distinction between volitional and non-volitional action and a large set of irregular nouns borrowed from a dead language, Nenddeyly. In the meantime I can direct you to the translation made by my ammanuensis, Issytra, of a Conlang Relay text she felt was utterly baffling: http://conlang.org/language-creation-conference/lcc5/3-teonaht/. My early machinima (or Real Time Animation--made under the sobriquet "Textcavation" and director "Hypatia Pickens") has me singing in Teonaht.

  • William W Moore (USA 2017) I set out in 1957 to invent a universal language from scratch. I was seeking a logical or rational language, like math, that was not just a collection of arbitrary sounds, which would mean the same in every culture regardless of what other languages they already speak. In the process of "creating" language I discovered that the languages we already have are more "created" languages – products of forethought and design – and less products of "evolution" than they're commonly presumed to be. I'm still working at it.

  • Philip Newton (Germany 2011)

  • Johnathan Palmer (USA 2021) Polar Bear is the inventor of Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k. It means "everything on earth lives and breathes." The Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language is actually two different languages. One is a choreographed dance that I have made into a script to read and follow. The second is the spoken language that is called Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k. The dance is called skeleton moves (pɐtÍœ jɐ'tÍœ jɐ'chÍœ jɐ) and can also be practiced as a martial art. The Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language has an IPA and a script I have created for it. It has no romanization because the language contains more sounds than what can be written out in roman letters. --- I want to develop the Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language even more than I have already. My goal is to compile a Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language dictionary that’s at least 10,000-word entries or more and containing 1,800 idioms. My plan is to accomplish this goal over the course of five years. During this five-year term I plan on mastering all 12 levels of pɐtÍœ jɐ'tÍœ jɐ'chÍœ jɐ as well. I also have one other language that is in the making but I will need to wait until the Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language project is finished and I have mastered skeleton moves. My main language interest with the Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language is the overall phonology of the language since I want it to sound fluid and consistent like a natural language would. My second language interest in the Tɐ́lÊ’rə̬k language is the meaning and impact it can have when spoken by oneself and another person. I believe sounds can have a deep impact on the human brain in a positive way that is why I am so focused on phonology. My third language interest is to perform the dance (skeleton moves - pɐtÍœ jɐ'tÍœ jɐ'chÍœ jɐ) as a creative expression of myself.
