About me

Hi, I’m lili21 and I’m a Lombard conlanger in the twenties; my best-developed conlangs on this site are Chlouvānem and Atlantic.

I’ve been making up languages ever since I was nine, even though those things were just relexes of Italian with words sounding like a mixture of completely different languages. Only since I was 17, when I fell in love with Linguistics while randomly reading about Ancient Greek online, I put together this passion with other great interests of mine - Geography (and drawing - badly - maps of fictional territories) and mass transit - to create my conworld, Calémere, which changed a lot of times during these years to get from that first draft to its present, incomplete, state, the one most of what I’ve written here makes up: all of my conlangs but four are part of Calémere, an attempt at a posteriori romlanging in a divergent timeline of Earth). My main and most developed conlang, Chlouvānem, which I created at the end of 2016 (though partially based on earlier conlangs), is one of Calémere’s two linguae francae. Anyway, I’m just as much a conlanger as I’m a conworlder, as I feel the need to create a setting for any conlang in order to work on it.

Concerning languages, I’m mostly interested in historical linguistics, in the evolution of Indo-European languages, particularly Romance and Slavic ones, and in Gallo-Italic and Indo-Aryan languages. I’m also interested in various other things like literature, geography, history, anthropology, mass transit systems, and urbanism.
I'm asymmetrically bilingual in Italian and Lombard, and I also speak English, German, Portuguese, and Russian to various degrees, plus I have some basic understanding of French, Ligurian, Spanish, Danish, and Swedish (in decreasing order).
