Hello readers! This feature has been on hold for a long time—partly due to me being shy and uncertain of how often I can update this site. I have since placed my personal feelings aside and decided to move forward with this blog.
In this site you will find a plethora of information regarding the language Lortho. It started as a spark in 2003 as a writing system which was lost to all but a few glyphs in my memory. It was not until 2016 when I decided to continue its development into a language that you see today.
My intent is to make this language feel like a discovery, rather than a creation or work of art. Each word I create for Lortho is viewed as its own individual discovery and I explain it as such when I want to test it in a sentence or phrase. I have yet to make other languages or dialects based on Lortho, but hey, one step at a time, right?
The current lexicon of Lortho recently passed 700 entries and it is still growing. My hope is that in the future I can open up Lortho to the community and let it become a true living language akin to Na’vi or Klingon. That is ambitious, I know, but one day I am sure it will be successful—hopefully during my lifetime!
So please peruse this site freely and enjoy your stay! I hope that during this journey you and I can find inspiration in each other’s works. Bye for now!
