Neoslavonic Website

Here.

Neoslavonic is a new constructed language, or conlang. These languages have a history of not being very successful for some odd reason, but they are definitely a good idea. For instance, in Esperanto it takes about 1 year to get to a fluency level that it takes one 8 years to get to in English.

Neoslavonic was created from mixing together the major Slavic languages, presumably Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian, Bulgarian, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Slovenian, Serbo-Croatian and Macedonian. These languages are fairly similar anyway and there is a fair amount of intelligibility between them. The notion of a Pan-Slavic language is a good idea.

The website is very well done and there seems to be some time and money behind it. Seems to be run out Czechoslovakia.

  1. Dear Robert
    I thought there were 3 subbranches to the Slavic branch of the Indo-European languages: the Eastern, the Southern and the Western branch. This suggest that they aren’t all very close to each other.

  2. Hello.
    Yes, it a project started in the Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia). We already used this conlang at conferences, have some media support (tv, news, journals), is subject of university PhD research and recently we assembled a speech synthetizer. (http://www.izviestija.info/generator_reci.html)

    For little more detail: This language is not only a kind of balanced mixture of contemporal slavic languages. Neoslavonic grammar and its root vocabulary is based on the modernized Old Church Slavonic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Church_Slavonic) and has about 6000 words, which semms to be very close to the source forms of different words evolved in current slavic languages. This is the idea of Neoslavonic comprehensibility. Of course, modern words are mixed from modern languages as You wrote.

    regards
