If you mean, Tech, I'd say it qualifies as a frankenlang. Maggel and Ebisedian and Pisde would likely be nominated by their creators. One of my langs which I've never gone far with developing would definitely be a frankenlang. It had only high front vowels, but had 6 or 8 of them and all the consonants were auditorily similar, eg. /t_S/, /t_s/, /t'S'/, /t_C/, etc. with about 10 or fifteen voicless and an equal number of voiced. Quite monstrous.
