ANADEW - A Natlang Already Does it, Except Worse YAPT - Yet Another Pronunciation Thread, a generalisation from YAEPT - Yet Another English Pronunciation Thread AFMCL - As For My Conlang Maggelity - The property of being utterly horrific, yet allegedly regular IB - Ill Bethisiad. An alternate Earth where a number of on- and off-list conlangs exist. Types of conlang: natlang - Natural language (i.e. a real one) artlang - Any conlang that is not an auxlang auxlang - An intrinsically doomed project ;-) engelang - An engineered language. I'm not sure of the exact shade of meaning implied. lostlang - A conlang that could concievably be real, and which is presented as such loglang - A logical language toylang - A gedanken plaything, usually pretty ephemeral romlang - Latin-derived Conlang ielang - PIE-derived Conlang Most of the other names for languages derived from real languages are fairly transparent. ... and many more!!!
