Language Creation Lessons
I will teach you how to create your own language (conlang) and you will make one as we go.
Many people who are interested in making a language don't have the skills necessary to do so and get frustrated when they don't understand linguistics terminology. That's where I come in!
I will teach some basic linguistics such as phonology using IPA (sounds), morphology (how words are put together), semantics (what words mean), syntax (how sentences are formed) and more. We go at a pace you're comfortable with, and I will explain everything in an easy to understand way.
I will teach you how to make a language that can be used for anything, including journals, a mental exercise, a d&d campaign, a way to send secret letters to a friend, or anything else you can think of!
Be aware that it may take several lessons to make a useable language.
In general, I say that three is all we need. the first session will be about the sounds you want in your language, the second is about making words, and the third is about making sentences. If you need more help than that, or less, that's totally okay.
If you have already started a language and need advice or help with specific parts, that is okay and we can just work on what you need help with.
I will also give you links to some of the best resources for conlanging.

And I is awesome at knitting and crocheting. She has created several of her own patterns and is very good at making custom items for people too. Her attention to detail and hard work are apparent in every item she creates. I highly recommend her for any knitting or crocheting projects.

About Andi Greynolds
I'm a linguistics major in university in my senior year. I have been conlanging (creating languages) since I was 15 and that's why I'm in college for linguistics. I'm on the dean's list and have been ...for the past two years. I am president and founder of the knitting and crochet group at my university, so I knit and crochet frequently and I teach other people how to. I sell my knitted items on Etsy and my knitting patterns on Etsy and Ravelry (some are free on Ravelry!) My mom is an artist (polymer clay, origami, fine arts) and I take after her in that way. I love art. I paint (oils, acrylics), knit, crochet, draw (digital, charcoal/conte, pencil), I do photography (iphone, fancy digital cameras, b&w film cameras, photograms, pinhole cameras), I create languages and writing systems (yes, that's art!), and many other media that I don't use as frequently, such as polymer clay, origami, and other miscellaneous crafts. I've studied 6 languages in school (Spanish, French, Latin, German, Chinese [Mandarin], and Japanese) and I'm trying to learn Cornish (Kernewek Kemmyn) right now because it's my heritage language and it was dead for around 100 years but was revived around 100 years ago, which makes learning it so much cooler. In fact, I even have a blog where I post words daily and will sometime soon (hopefully) get around to posting lessons and the like and integrating that with Memrise and Quizlet. I collect language and linguistics books (I currently own over 500!). I want to write novels that include my conlangs. That's pretty much my life goal. I retain the rights of everything I create unless I specifically state otherwise. Mostly this just means I can use what I make for you as examples of my work.
