General information

The so far unnamed Comlang is a community conlang constructed jointly by four users on the Conlang Wiki. The main contributors are, in alphabetic order:

Being a community conlang, it is updated very sporadically, and only after decent consensus by the contributors. Most attributes pass a smaller vote to be implemented on this page, following a discussion on the connected forum page. If you have any general suggestions or ideas, or simply want to join in on creating the language, please, just leave any of the members a message, or engage yourself on the forum page!

The language proper has been agreed upon that it should be a Turkic-style language, with a Hungarian-inspired orthography, and thus naturalistic in its ambitions. It is synthetic, to what degree has not yet been decided, and it has a nominative-accusative alignment.
