fictional diachronic language - A model language with an elaborate fictional
history, typically tracing its evolution from an ancestor language or language
family (which may be a natural language or model language).

    Science-fictional language of the _goomee-djen_, Transhumanoids and
"ChimpManzees" on a generation ship augmented and piloted by an AI.

languages that inspired goomeelegoo:

    Pidgins and creoles (esp'ly Bislama), various IALs (i.e. Novial, Glosa),
as well as various natural languages like Japanese, Italian, Dutch, English
tech-jargon & slang, Sanskrit, etc..

    Using the classification system devised by Richard Harrison, goomeelegoo
1.5.2  -  a combination of heterogenous natural languages with words filtered
or modified by phonotactic/morphological rules

     Language[s] change[s]: vowels shift, phonologies crash-&-burn, grammars
leak, morpho-syntactics implode, lexico-semantics mutate, lexicons explode,
orthographies reform, typographies blip-&-beep, slang flashes, stylistics
warp... linguistic (R)evolutions mark each-&-every quantum leap...
...languages are "naturally evolved wild systems... language does not impose
order on a chaotic universe, but reflects its own wildness back." - Gary Snyder
