Vling is my new conlang.  It has East Asian inspirations.  It is tonal.
The tone indicates a word's part of speech.  So far, there are more than
1600 defined words.

Tao can be talked about, but not the Eternal Tao.
Names can be named, but not the Eternal Name.
As the origin of heaven-and-earth, it is nameless:
As "the Mother" of all things, it is nameable.
So, as ever hidden, we should look at its inner essence.
As always manifest, we should look at its outer aspects.
These two flow from the same source, though differently named;
And both are called mysteries.
The Mystery of mysteries is the Door of all essence.

(Tao Te Ching, Chapter 1 )
