In my conlang, my username would be written as Wykkerdy Wytbch. Of course there is additional infection that is impossible to represent with the puny mortal Latin alphabet, and there are multiple ways to write each letter.

In FairyLang, my name would be rendered as "Janu," which I have defined as "sword," specifically, a large war sword. Mwa-ha-ha!

When my parents named me, they wanted to make sure it had a meaning in as many languages as possible.

Mine gave me the most generic name there is, lol. I like it though.

If I knew what the fuck I was doing I'd love to converse with you guys about conlagging.

I've been trying to figure out a language for a species of sentient people similar to humans but not quite. I've been using what has been made for the Mandalorian language so far because they're similar in type of humanoid.

I didn't have the foggiest clue what I was doing when I started. I'm learning as a go along, so don't be shy.

Yeah, I started without even knowing what a phoneme was. That said, learning a little bit of linguistics on the side helps make really satisfying languages, and is very interesting.

If you haven't seen it before I highly recommend Mark Rosenfelder's Language Construction Kit as a guide to conlanging.
Oh look it's me.

I recently discovered an excellent tool for creating new words , it helps with the tricky problem of lexifying:

It can take a bit of fiddling to get the phonotactics just right, but it saves a lot of time in the long run.

I just spent an afternoon looking through your fairylang John and I have to say I am loving how it is looking. I'm rather fond of all the interplay with consonant mutations and genders. It even inspired me to actually sit down and throw together some basics of a language I have been mulling over in my head for a few weeks. I threw together this little bit of fluff (I picture it as a semi-religious oath):

(click to show/hide)
(spoilered because weird formatting)
It has a writing system written in vertical lines, I may try and whip something up on paint or something. By the way John, are there any plans for a fairy writing system? I always find writing systems particularly fascinating.

Edited to add: The parts in brackets are grammatical aspects that sort of make it sound kind of pretentious and old-timey like all the best religions, I used them in the written text below:
