ConLing is the world of descriptive linguistics and constructed languages. If you're a hobbyist linguist, a conlanger of any experience level, or just a casual wonderer about this little-known window into human brains and cultures, this is the place for you! A new ConLing post is published every single Sunday, and most weeks I choose to cover a particular linguistic field or feature but sometimes more conlanging-specific topics.
