Okay, I mentioned Rejistanian already, but I think I should write a few things about it:

Rejistanian, it is an artlang and fauxlang (an auxlang for a fictional country)

it is still horribly outdated, but an outline is at

Updated info, short texts and songs in rejistanian, also the constitution of Rejistania if it ever gets finished.

My first idea was: To snicker at the mistakes of a newbie ;) But actually: It is rather easy but I found it to be interesting since it can express certain things better than English or German can. I remember when I talked to my fiance and he said something, and I immediately saw it in front of me in rejistanian and thought it would sound awesome (and he agreed after I translated it word for word for him). It does not require you to be able to use Unicode since 18 letters, ' and ~ and the punctuation characters are everything you need. Even though it is a simple language, it is not only yet another language which simply repeats all concepts of English or German. -- Neu: GMX FreeDSL Komplettanschluss mit DSL 6.000 Flatrate + Telefonanschluss für nur 17,95 Euro/mtl.!*
