Constructed languages

A constructed language (conlang in short) is a language that has been consciously devised in entirety or in vast majority by an individual or a group. Contrary to natural languages, it has not evolved naturally.

Some conlangs are created to make communications easier (auxiliary languages), others are to further flesh out a fictional world (fictional languages), some are just linguistic experiments.

The most famous of conlangs is undoubtedly Esperanto.

Fictional languages are a subset of constructed languages – they usually exist in a fictional world of a book or a film. They usually have features rare in human languages, but can usually be spoken by the humans – there was an experiment to bring a child up as a speaker of Klingon.
