Hi, I'm Aquatiki. I tend to obsess over language for a long time and be years in development. In grad school, I studied Semitics (Hebrew and related languages), and I got into conlanging as a fun way to be sure I understood what I was learning.


Fake Worlds and Their Fake Languages

I'm almost exclusively interested in "mash-langs", i.e. combining existing language. My main worlds are:

  • One where people learn my naturalistic auxlangs
Esperanto for the w:East Asian cultural sphere, languages who have Chinese in their background.
Weddish is an Ergative, Dual, Anti-Abstraction Yiddish auxlang. It was made for a class on marriage, so it's meant to encourage better communication, especially for Jews who intermarry and Systematic Theologians who like Biblical Theology.
Dr. Francis Nolan was commission by the HP movie makers to create a phonology and a few sentences, which he was very gracious to share with me. I expanded upon them greatly, bringing in further Estonian influences, and adding Dravidian and Bantu ideas.
Primarily using Ugaritic, I have reconstructed a best-guess of what Hebrew sounded like in 1000 B.C. and imagined what would happen if they were hauled off to the Philippines and interacted with something like Proto-Austronesian or Tagalog.
  • Proto-Polynesian Hebrew
Using the previous language as a base, I plan on mashing up Hebrew with Māori
An utterly polysynthetic exolang, completely without nouns.


Some other ideas I'm kicking around include: Summerian-Chinese, Ge'ez-Korean, Gothic Korean, and Sino-Syriac

I use aquatiki just about everywhere on the internet. As far as a conlang presence goes, I started out on Frathwiki. It is fine, but Linguifex seems much more polished. Wikia was really limiting.

Should you ever feel a dire need of contacting me, simply leave me a message at my discussion page!
