My Conlangs

These are languages I have made for my own creative purposes over the years. Most of them have been for use in the world-setting of Aeniith. Most of these languages were developed over the course a few months, while others, I still add to today. The most developed include Rílin, which has over 3,500 words in its vocabulary. To see my website for Aeniith-specific languages and worldbuilding, please visit the Aeniith website.

Conlangs of Aeniith

Gotevian (1998)

Lomi (2004)

Ankesimtoh (2004)

Bayë (Lavile) (2004)

Tosi (2013)

Rílin (2013)

The first language I created. This language was originally called "Rhymish". It was inspired by several natural languages, including Welsh, Irish, and Latin.


Bryedae yaonil

Wavoma elealu

Rethea voa


'Serene trees

They shift gently 

Green arms'

Lomi is a sister language of Gotevian, related in much the same way as French is to Italian, for example. 


M, aoka, n'alpha.

'Is it a turtle?'

'Well, no, it's a bat.'


Ankesimtoh is the mother language of Gotevian and Lomi, from which both languages are derived. This was the beginning of my interest in creating interrelated language families, which I have also done for several clients. 

Bayë (aka Lavile) is a language spoken by humanoids that are quite different to the other peoples of Aeniith. Their language is highly agglutinative (parts of words string together to make rather long words).


Tovmanar imuss dosalle; semuvromar hirphillas inelethas muvir.  

'The fog in the forest was overwhelming; we could not see our own hands.'

Takmanse miklaphsuvir shtusall 

Takman mulasse glinno

Resmulta lyame delas taktlummayi.


'Your arms are not a hindrance

They are an impenetrable cloak

And a silent fortress that protects me.'


Tosi was invented to be spoken by a fictional culture of matriarchal, imperialistic humanoids. It has shorter words and very few suffixes or prefixes, while having many words that end and begin in consonants. It was intended to sound somewhat clipped and 'to-the-point'. 


Ke vi fedu fiv i, sa vi gō vubin, vi gō gin. 


‘If it succeeds, it isn’t deceit, it’s strategy’ 

Rílin is the language of the Ríli, a small race of grey-skinned humanoids that live on the same continent as the Tosi. In the stories of Aeniith, the Ríli have been at war with the Tosi for years. Rílin is probably the most fully developed conlang made for Aeniith. It also includes many poems, stories, and songs in its corpus of texts. It was inspired by many languages, including Mongolian and Hungarian.


Nó laílezap bí kaíet, tísûdapen kó ledapky du a tísûdapen pinö kó be wesadípinky täñset séla, gan níŝó eríñadakap, a be letaap ókaraet fala pinmu faet.    


‘When the fire started, they said that it would go out soon and not to worry about it, but as you can see it has only gotten bigger, and talking about it isn’t going to extinguish it.’

Seloi (2013)

Karkin (2015)

Ori (2018)

Bwezhi (2020)

Seloi is a language inspired by Greek, Latin, Fijian, and Finnish. It is spoken by the most technologically advanced culture of Aeniith, the Selupa. They are infamous for refusing to share their technologies openly. The language was intended to be elegant but complex.


Kyjali na kolauja-ke na vimoitji le-ke heski.

'They understand the child is sad.'
Vil na in ke, het okol?

“You aren’t coming, are you?”

Karkin was designed to be spoken by the near neighbors of the Selupa. The Karkin people are considered 'wild' by their neighbors but have a rich culture and history. The Karkin language was designed with many consonants that string together in ways that may be harder to pronounce for some. Its verbal system is rich with descriptive terms relating to the harsh Karkin environment. 


Cemëq naiyughkun gihe mi.

‘The spear is sharper than the knife’ 


Shtumë hmal qsō ti.

‘The fighter is behind the wall’

Ori is a language spoken by the inhabitants of a small northerly island known for its colorful flowers. It was inspired by many languages, including Greek, Estonian, and Japanese. It is intended to sound complex yet elegant. 


Netani sesur alart nas tan lyosa nalina cahanit peltacu pelit bil. 
'I wish for you in the future to find someone who will mourn you when you are gone.'

Bwezhi is the newest addition to Aeniithian this space for more info!
