be used in either a game (Space Flight Sim type.), or perhaps in an SF
CL # 2) Keten Ji Nahen, Lit. "Our speech", a language used as a root.
There will be more languages based off of it in the future, including a
closer to modern version of Keten. These languages are based in a
CL # 3) Tit'xka /tit@tSka/, a newly revived language of some rather
nasty-evil spider beings, probably to be used in the afore mentioned

>CL # 1) Extremely Isolating. I don't normally like Isolating
languages, but this one, I felt needed that. Grammar is going to be
pretty lax too. Vocabulary is going to be geared towards space craft
designation, communication, etc. Especially identification and records
taking. Very little words for planet based activity.
CL # 2) Mostly Isolating. Will eventually evolve into many different
languages, of many varieties.
CL # 3) Haven't decided yet. I, uh, just started back in again... :)

I can't really come up with too much off the top of my head for any
language I make. So really it's no speakers for mine. And if any Rich
Aunts out there try and do anything with my languages, I'll sue for
copyright infringement. It is my language. If they try and say, this
is what it would sound like, I'd say " talk to the hand, and don't
forget my lawyer." Then I'd go get a lawyer. :)
