Where my Feet have been – Abby Ruins

The weekend weather was amazing! Visiting the Abby ruins near where I live is always interesting, normally it's a place where children can play hide and seek or people can relax and chill out in peace.

Language Generator for Fantasy and Sci-Fi

This is a great post from Kristen on a language generator that can be used for us fiction writers, especially those in scifi and fantasy!

Simon 🙂

Kristen Twardowski

I’ve talked about my fascination with language before, but sometimes writers need a little help creating words that make sense in their nascent worlds. I recently found something that streamlines that process.

Vulgar (pardon the terrible name) is a constructed language generator. The generator creates fully realized languages; if you were truly ambitious you could learn some of them. The program attempts to mimic real languages, so there are patterns to the words that develop. For instance, in 50% of generated languages, the word for “tongue” is the same as the word for “language”, and words often share roots as is the case for:

pson /pʂon/ n. paint; v. paint
psopru /ˈpʂopru/ n. painter

I’ve played around with the generator quite a bit and am highlighting a few sample languages below.
