Nicely presented conlangs

Post by Davush »

What are your favourite nicely presented conlangs? I am looking for inspiration and I enjoy reading through other people's conlang grammars. I have a PDF of Okuna, which is amazing and extremely detailed (a level of detail I don't think my conlangs will ever reach) and layed out very clearly with lots of examples. What others are there?

I would prefer to see more examples of fleshed-out grammars than just phonologies. I enjoy conlang grammars that read like Describing Morphosyntax rather than just lists of declensions and verbal forms and thought it would be nice to know of any others out there!

I'll always opt for mentioning Monoba's Siwa and Mecislau's Novegradian, Alashian and Očets when this sort of question is asked. They're well described, have lots of examples when it comes to lexicon, morphology and syntax and since Mecislau's conlangs are tied to the real-world, you'll also find out how they relate to their close relatives (the other Slavic languages for Novegradian and both the Semitic languages and Greek for Alashian). The work of these two users always stand out, to me, as some of the best examples of what conlanging can achieve in terms of both quantity (that Siwa link contains a PDF some 600 pages long) and quality (the depth involved in Alashian, for example, actually makes it feel like a real Semitic language that could have been spoken on Cyprus). At the very least, I find them hugely impressive.
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.
