Topic: Talossan language


  
  Talossan-Language.com
This website is a portal into the wonderful Talossan language, that was created by R. Ben Madison as being the official language of Talossa, a micro-nation he founded on December 26th 1979.
On June 1st 2004, the Republic of Talossa seceded from the Kingdom of Talossa and decided to keep using Talossan as it's official language.
Talossan is one of the most beautiful and complete constructed languages in the world, and has received over 20 years of efforts into it's creation, first by R. Ben Madison, and more recently by several citizens of Talossa.

 Artistic language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fictional languages are intended to be the languages of a fictional world, and are often designed with the intent of giving more depth and an appearance of plausibility to the fictional worlds with which they are associated, and to have their characters communicate in a fashion which is both alien and dislocated.
An earlier instance is Philip José Farmer's Winkie language, a relative of the Germanic languages spoken by the Winkies of Oz in A Barnstormer in Oz.
Talossan, from R. Ben Madison's Kingdom of Talossa, is by far the best-known example of a micronational language.
