A Conversation for Model Languages


Post 1


There's an interesting project in the workings to create an inter-Germanic language, called Folkspraak. The idea is that, because so many Germanic languages are so closely related, any native Germanic speaker should be able to read Folkspraak immediately, if not perfectly. Fluency in writing and speaking should be attainable within a few weeks of study. It's an interesting concept. The basic plan for creating the vocabulary centers around finding the lowest common denominator of all the languages, i.e, the words that are similar between the greatest number of root languages.

There's a website somewhere where you can get involved in the currently ongoing project, but I don't know the address offhand.
