Constructed languages or 'conlangs' are languages that are designed rather than evolved. Some constructed languages, especially 'international auxiliary languages' such as Esperanto, have been designed to be spoken by humans; others had other specific purposes. In addition to those, there are constructed languages that are created for no other purpose than the joy of creation. Since those are the focus of Geopoeia, unless specified otherwise, the term 'conlang' will be used to refer to such 'purpose-less' constructed languages, sometimes also called 'artlangs'.


categorization

Some conlangs are created as completely independent creations, others are part of a fictional geographical entity (see Geofiction and Conworlds):

Within all three further categorizations by means of linguistic criteria are possible.
