Why world design? because despite of all technology and communication progress we still live isolated in parcels of the world. We must move on. So Schiller's Ode to Joy is a hymn to me:
Freude, schoener Goetterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum.
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was der Mode Schwert geteilt
Bettler werden Fuerstenbrueder
Wo dein sanfter Fluegel weilt.
I've been conworlding since my early teens and (except for one attempt some ten years ago) only recently became seriously interested in conlanging. I have an M.A. in Slavic Philology with a focus on language contact and language mixing, and have fun implementing some of those theories in my conlangs.
In the process of writing peryllilyiad or peryll-speak in English (still working on the name aha). I originally became interested in conlanging halfway through primary school when i wanted to write a language in which i can secretly speak in with my friends and i guess the interest has stuck with me. Hoping to study linguistics in later compulsory education and university.
I have been doing world design since the early 2000s.
I like reading books that are a cross between realistic fiction and fantasy. I'm not sure how to describe it fully, but if you read the book The Onion Girl, that pretty much sums up the genre I am into.
I have a BA in Linguistics. I love making conlangs, and have 5 so far(3 in the same family), one of which I speak fairly well. Unfortunately, no one else speaks it.
