    Default Fantasy languages

    Hello everyone. First, let me start by saying that I hope this is in the right section.

    I was wondering if anyone has ever come across any tutorials/helpful material(s) that might aid in the creation of a fantasy language? Obviously I'm no Tolkien, but everything I've found has made absolutely no sense to me what so ever.
    Thanks for reading.

    Editing with a few more details:
    I've decided to base my language heavily on Swedish. I've tried changing some words and lettering around, but nothing seems to be clicking.

    You should check out the Toponymy and Linguistics forum.

    some suggestions Quenya Course Helge K. Fauskanger


    Copyright policy: This course can be downloaded from
    Ardalambion (Ardalambion), but not
    re-posted elsewhere on the net without permission from the
    author, H. K. Fauskanger. Print-outs may be made for per-
    sonal use (private groups included).


    The Grey Company - The Elven Language

    these are both about the rules of languages in Tolkien, there are also various articles in Tolkien studies,


    Esperanto may also be worth looking at.

    The Language Construction Kit might well have more information about making a language than you will need. Nonetheless, it is an amazing resource.
