Title: Artificial Descendants of Latin
Written By: Alan Reed Libert
Series Title: Languages of the World 31
Description:

Artificial Descendants of Latin
Alan Libert
University of Newcastle

Among the hundreds of artificial languages created in recent centuries are a fair number of modified versions of Latin and languages which have taken many elements from Latin. These diverge in varying degrees and ways from Classical Latin. This book is a survey of such projects. The languages examined include Communia, Latino sine Flexione, Linguum Islianum, SPL and Universal-Latein. An introduction presenting the languages is followed by chapters on phonetics, lexicon, morphology, syntax, and semantics. (visit our webshop: www.lincom.at)
