Hi, I'm Aquatiki. I tend to obsess over languages 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:

Weddish is an auxlang, with an overly extensive history. Old Frisian became influenced by Old Welsh, was conquered by Hebrew, and once again returned to the Welsh.
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.
