Lortho Blog is live!

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!

Hello! I am Brian Bourque, the author and creator of Lortho, the artistic conlang (artlang) that this site focuses on. I am relatively new to the community; however, I have been active enough to get my name out there and you might have already heard of my work. If my work shows up on anything other than FB, Twitter, Instagram or this site, chances are it has been published without my permission / knowledge. Enjoy your stay and look around!
