Welcome to Linguifex,
the free wiki for conlangs that anyone can edit!
Currently detailing 1,020 articles and languages: 34 % of our goal.
There are currently 9 stubs and 3 articles that need expanding.

  Featured language
Fén Ghír is a language spoken primarily amongst the Fén people on the North-Western Fén Ír penisula, as well as various islands and smaller northern settlements on the continent known as Dínír amongst the Fén. It is referred to as "Borealis" in a more culturally neutral English language on the conworld of "Sphaera". It is one of four major surviving members of the Galavic family, and the only politically independant one. Fén primarily relies on two scripts, the first, Highlands Fén, or Célán, is a system similar to runic or Ogham runes which evolved from a tallymark system. The other is called Lowland Writing and is a more recent innovation derived from the Toryl system, a mixed alphabet and abjad,

Bhé fhémoc bér me ló cór ít pon éloc té bér dhén na bélim na lú dhír cór ghír ítá.
Thanks to its level of quality, plausibility and usage capabilities, it has been voted as featured.

Fén Ghír is an a priori constructed language by Fauxlosophe on the Linguifex Wiki for the conworld Sphaera. It shows heavy Irish Gaelic influence in orthography and phonology, as well as in grammar. The grammar and syllable structure have also been heavily influenced by Japanese. English and French are also present as lesser influences.

  Selected article
Morphosyntactic alignment[*] describes the grammatical relationship between languages' three main sentence arguments, in intransitive[*] and monotransitive sentences.

Specifically, the core arguments of verbs, are the two arguments (in English, subject and object) of transitive verbs:

  • The dog chased the cat

And the single argument of intransitive verbs:

  • The cat ran away

English has a subject, which merges the more active argument of transitive verbs with the argument of intransitive verbs, leaving the object distinct; other languages may have different strategies, or, rarely, make no distinction at all.

For conlangers, it is important to know that few languages are of merely one morphosyntactic alignment; in most cases, the alignment varies depending on context.

There are currently 4 administrators, also known as admins/sysops, on the Linguifex wiki, all of which are ready to help both newcomers and experienced members of the community! Sometimes they might even need the help of the community themselves! Please, don't hesitate to ask either one of them for help:
  Welcome to Linguifex!
This wiki is aimed at facilitating the development and creation of constructed languages, conlangs. Constructed languages are made with many different purposes in mind; experimentation, internationalisation, enjoyment and a lot more. They are often linked to constructed cultures and other kinds of inspired settings. Constructed languages have almost endless possibilities, so try making one!

Welcome to Linguifex!

  Create a language!
Do you want to create a language? It can take a lot of work to make it presentable but the results are often amazing! To make your own language you need to decide on:
  • The phonology - the sounds of the language.
  • The grammar - the framework of the language.
  • The vocabulary - the words and dictionary of the language. Enter a title in the box below to start creating your language.

For more information on linguistics see our guide and the linguistics section.

  Create a Word!
Linguifex houses not just your language, but a dictionary similar to Wiktionary, Contionary. Here you can create and share the vocabulary and details of your constructed language! Mind the capitalisation and get going!

Not sure where to start?
Adding content
  • If you want to help but you're not sure where to start, try improving the various stub articles by expanding them.
  • Add a new, needed category.
  • Another helpful activity would be to check the list of wanted pages for frequently linked-to articles that don't exist yet.
  • Providing linguistic and phonetic information.
  • You can find a list of needed templates here.
