Index:Language families

From OpenGeofiction
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page lists real world language families, subgroups and languages and their OGF equivalent, where these languages are known to exist.

Language families are grouped, colours similar to wikipedia. This page currently includes around half of the worlds main primary language families (but only a very small proportion of real world languages). New additions at top level (family) should take a unique colour, based on the colours used in wikipedia.

OGF equivalent of language families in brackets (e.g. (Axian-Ardentic)) means suggested names or temporary, which they can be changed by someone else who can think up of a better name.

'Conlangs' and unique language mixes (i.e. combinations of languages that do not exist in the real world) should be shaded in brown - pick a novel shade from here. 'Grouped conlangs' - that is languages which are related to each other - and creoles of the same language mix (e.g. English & Japanese) should share a colour.

Languages for which Google Translate is available are marked *.

The template at Template:Infobox lang/doc will allow you to place an infobox for your language that automatically matches the colour of the language family shown on this page.
