Secret language made just for you
I will make a language for you to use in your life. You can use it in journals or to communicate with friends, use it to take notes in class or as a fun mental exercise. You could even use it to write your blog! (No commercial uses).
The language will include one hundred and fifty words and basic grammar. Three hundred more words can be traded for with services or simbis from this listing if you already have a language.
I can make words to fit your uses, so if you want the language to take notes in a linguistics class, I will give you mostly a list of linguistics vocabulary. Let me know what languages you like or don't like so I can make one that you will enjoy! I have a list of questions if you're not sure what you like, so you can get the best language possible that appeals to you.
Once traded for, creation of the vocabulary and grammar will take less than a week. You will receive an email of two PDFs for a first time trade, one is a dictionary and the other will be a simple lesson book (5-10 lessons) which can be used as a reference grammar.
If you already have a language and are trading for three hundred words, your email will include an updated dictionary with all the words in your language as well as an updated reference grammar/ lesson book if anything has been changed.
This does NOT include a script (writing system) for your language. I can do that, but it is a different listing. If you just trade for this, you will get a language that uses the Roman alphabet. I can make a script at any time, though, so you can trade for it later on if you decide you want one.
I can provide examples of my work upon request.
Training & Qualifications
I am a linguistics major in university and I have been making languages (conlangs) since I was 15.
Availability & Preferences
I'm a senior college student so I don't have as much free time as I would like, so I ask for you to give me at least a month. I will reject proposals that are less than a month. Thank you!

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.
