ProFantasy Software ~ map making for RPG, game, historical and h NetHack 3.4.3: Home Page World Builders Home Page Build Your Own World!!! The Language Construction Kit This set of webpages (what’s a set of webpages? a webchapter?) is intended for anyone who wants to create artificial languages— for a fantasy or an alien world, as a hobby, as an interlanguage. It presents linguistically sound methods for creating naturalistic languages— which can be reversed to create non-naturalistic languages.

Round 1, of 26 turns each representing an alphabet letter, is nearly done. Today is the last day for entries starting with Y. If you're interested in joining Round 2 (currently scheduled to start May 14th, a month from now), the first thing to do is start reading. Leave comments here if you've questions, thoughts, or confusions.
