Explore the Anglosic Family of languages

Never satisfied with a single conlang, I have, so far today, created 11 new
languages, each a member of a family tree of languages I call the Anglosic

Now here's the fun part. You can go to my interactive web site and in about 15
or 20 minutes create a whole language and add it to the Anglosic Family Tree of
languages. You see, each language inherits all of the grammar and lexicon of
the parent language with the exception of whatever mutations you wish to
introduce into your own new language. You can pick any language in the existing
family tree to be the parent language of your new creation.  Then, after
choosing what your mutation(s) will be you simply translate a given short piece
of text (A very short Hans Christain Anderson story) from the parent language
you picked, incorporating the mutations you have invented, producing the corpus
of a whole new language.

Your new creation will be entered into the database and given its rightful
place in the family tree of Anglosic languages. If you don't like the way any
of the existing branches of the family tree are growing, start at the root and
create your own new sub-family by supplying a mutation, or a handful of
mutations to the root language.

It's kind of a goofy idea, but where else can you go to create a whole conlang
in less than an hour?

Try it out, just for fun.
Or take a look at one of my own creations at

(I'm still working on the page that will display the whole family tree. For now
you have to click on parent or child links on each language page to navigate
from language to language. Also still under construction is the page that will
allow you to go back and edit any language you yourself have created in the
