so yeah, on topic n shit

for Rhean:

Turkish and various IE-langs for the grammar, a liiiiiiiiiiiittle bit Japanese, also for the grammar. From Turkish and Japanese I took Rhean's strong head-finalness and agglutinative morphology; from Greek, Latin, Russian I took its fusional-ish morphology, use of prepositions with varying cases, verb conjugation ... phonology was inspired by Turkish, Farsi, and slavic languages.

for Ishtol:

syntax inspired by Hawaiian and salish-langs, applicatives inspired by bantu languages, morphology kinda out of nowhere ... much of it designed not after natural languages but rather around the principle "let's do the opposite of Rhean".

Post subject:  Re: Post your conlang's inspiration

Vayardyio was a priori from the onset but leaned heavily on word patterns and sounds from English, French and German ( the languages I had to cope with while in highschool ). Its first grammar was almost literally copied from my Latin textbook. Since then there have been scores of makeovers in the vocabulary, my aim ever since has been to replace words with any resemblance to natlangs by words that would fit into the (ever more clearly) emerging Vayardyio pattern. I introduced new grammatical features after I'd started reading books on linguistics.
What continues to annoy me at times is: that my whole mindset is so thoroughly IE that I just can't conceive words and features for my conlang that are altogether different. They just sound too alien to me and I reject them sooner or later.
The most rewarding and sometimes even exciting thing to do is to create a word which really sounds as if it evolved in a natural way, I mean phonologically and etymologically.
A word that just sits on a page and expresses beauty in itself. Wow.

Proto-Sèferi for the Etheria project is heavily influenced by Tagalog, but I've been thinking about adding Germanic features as well.

For my newest project, Qaar, I've taken Blackfeet-and-toes as my primary inspiration, but I will actually draw inspiration from my other conalngs.

Proto-Arcesian for the Etheria project is vaguely Semitic and Greek, phonologically, but it is more Indo-European-ish and Quechua when it comes to grammar.

It's descendant, CLassical Arcesese, is more Greek and Indo-European ish.

Phonologically and orthographically, Meduzian is shamelessly based on Portuguese.

Otya lhenúkya, e marshala ovulu.

Gramatically, it's a little like Welsh, though rather more isolating. I think that was more worked out on my own.

I think Hungarian, Finnish and Greenlandic are having a little too much to say about Vanga right now, but old ideas from Kozea are also flourishing, and elements of the phonology are based on other stuff, and a lot of it is just my own imagination.

Is it just me or is Finnish a very "in" inspirational language for conlangs these days...?

(Don't get me wrong, I love the language. Just hearing "tervetuloa" makes me feel more welcome than in any other language! :D )

Post subject:  Re: Post your conlang's inspiration

I've recently jumped on the Finno-Ugric/Uralic boat too. My latest conlang is based largely on an attempt at hybridizing the phonologies and grammars of Hungarian and Gaelic (keeping some sort of vowel harmony while having a broad/slender consonant distinction). It's ergative and sort of non-configurational (constituent order is determined both by the specific verb being used and by pragmatic/rhetorical concerns), so I guess Warlpiri is also an influence on the grammar.

Efsig: Germanic languages, obviously. It's supposed to look Germanic. E zälten fädet hischö en Gömantöka.
Chiric: Zomp's Eretald conlangs, mostly Verdurian. It's supposed to appear similar to European languages. It's also inspired by Greek, because I was studying a bit of Greek at the time of its conception.
Izomafo: Has a CV(F/N/L) syllable structure and a small phoneme inventory. It's inspired by Japanese and Pacific languages.

Hwairinese: Japanese with a twist. ;D
Kayalian: SAE with ergavity.
Yagalian: Initially based on Japanese, now mostly based off Turkic, Ugric & Nez Perce.
Avang: Celto-Chinese
Sayetic: Semitic, don't you see the resemblence?
Crimean: What would happen if Romans conquered the Ukraine.
Levanti-Romance: French but not lame.

Tuyuk is like one of those small inventory Micronesian languages plus epiglottals (which I borrowed from Chechen) and a noun class system.
