ámman îar, or Amman-Iar, is an a priori diachronic artistic language. It was begun in the late 1970s by the late David Bell.  

The language is part of a conworld, and its setting is on a new fictional continent in Middle-Earth (the one of Tolkienian fame). The language thus has influences from several of Tolkien's own languages, but due to diachronics and new roots having been added, amman iar is very unique.

Bell was posthumously awarded a Smiley Award for ámman îar in 2010.

More information (as well as information on historical development of the language) can be found at its home page.
