Hello, and welcome to my Linguifex user page!


About me

Hi, my name is Nicolás and I'm from Argentina.

Having been interested in language for as long as I can remember, I first started crafting languages when I was about 12 years old (ca. 2000) and did so for the following two or three years. After that there was a hiatus in which I achieved a lot of other things, but didn't produce any new conlang-related material. Starting again ca. 2012, I've been both adding to my old projects and developing many new ones.

My native language is Rioplatense Spanish (Bonaerense), and I've been learning English since my early childhood. I've also been learning German for quite some years (C2), Finnish and Italian for much less.

I'm passionate about and enjoy learning languages, and also about their history and many intricacies. I also like travelling to get to know the different aspects of the cultures of the world. Besides designing languages and writing systems, I study philosophy (undergraduate) and also like to read, draw and make music.

About my Languages

Even though my tastes have changed over the years (the main difference being an increasing emphasis in historical linguistics) most of my conlangs still fit in the definition of artlangs, in particular, a priori naturalistic artlangs. That is, they are not built upon any natural language or language family, yet they strive to be not more nor less complex as any given natural language, while their purpose is that of an artistic endeavour and their development is strongly driven by their particular aesthetic (and not, for instance, the search for a purportedly superior effectivity or the intent of making them specifically easy to learn, as is the case with other kinds of conlangs[1]). Nevertheless, even though that's the kind of conlang I mostly make, I enjoy a wide variety of styles and genres across the whole spectrum of the craft.

Please take into account that this listing may be considered to be a work in process in at least two senses: 1) existing conlangs are still being wikified, and 2) new conlangs will continue expanding it.

Early conlangs

New conlangs

These are the conlangs I started crafting after having had a hiatus in my activity, starting again ca. 2012L

For some of this conlangs I wrote up samples for a thread in the Facebook group "Constructed Languages", in which I'm also a member of the administration team. The task was proposed as a small game: "From all your conlangs, pick one word to represent the language and describe it!".

Conworld of Yrḳuti

All the languages of the Yrḳuti conworlding project are a priori naturalistic artlangs.

These are some of the documented conlangs. First those with an in-world language family, then the language isolates:

The Northern Languages family populates the northern region of the central continent of Yrḳuti.
