Conlangs are constructed languages; being a language geek and linguaphile, I love developing my own conlangs.

I have one full-fledged conlang, called Uhjayi; click here to take a gander at Uhjayi‘s vocabulary, syntax, and written script. I even have audio pronunciation guides and tiny language lessons if you want to take your first steps into learning a strange new language that almost no one else on Earth knows.

I also have several letter-for-letter cyphers, which are simpler and easier to memorize and use, while still having their own distinct “sound” to characterize the fictional languages they represent. Click here to see all five public cyphers, including my most common, Kommu.

Last but far from least, I have a written script called Kalash that I’ve been using for over a decade. It is a simple written alphabet, having been my very first foray into the world of artificial languages, but I’ve used it in so many situations—from work notes to calligraphy-esque art to personalized symbols—that I can write it as quickly as I can all-caps English. (In fact, if I’m writing all-caps English for more than a word or two, I involuntarily slip into Kalash. It’s funny and frustrating all at the same time!)

Here’s what Kalash looks like in its handwritten and calligraphy forms:
