HASH(0x909d6db0) von 5 Sternen Not exactly what I was expecting 24. November 2011
Von Jonathan Badger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, while the idea of a true dictionary of constructed languages, where one could compare what word is used, for example, for "house" across various conlangs, would be a fascinating idea, despite the title, this is not a dictionary at all. I suppose one could call it an encyclopedia, although that too would be misleading. Basically, it's a paragraph or two about each of dozens of "made-up languages", where "made-up language" may be a "serious" artificial language like Esperanto, a "fun" one like Klingon, or just a fictional language like Anglic mentioned in passing in fiction and which lack grammars or vocabularies.

It seems odd that the author wastes so much time on the last category when there are so many fully developed artificial languages he neglects. For example, the author and linguistics professor M.A.R. Barker published a complete grammar and dictionary of his Tsolyani language for his well known Empire of the Petal Throne role-playing game, and yet this doesn't get so much as a mention. Ditto for Novial, an attempt at a "serious" artificial language by the well known linguist Otto Jespersen. Obviously no reference work can be complete, but again, it is odd that things like this are omitted while languages that are little more than names get a mention.

HASH(0x909d89f0) von 5 Sternen Excellent for what it claims to be 13. Mai 2012
Von Leo J. Moser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book provides little more than a glimpse at all the linguistic creations mentioned. But that is precisely what the title tells us is intended. So I rank it as excellent.

I almost gave it but four stars, however, since it did not delve deeply into lexicon issues of interest to me. But that would be unfair I decided.

It remains the most exhaustive set of examples of various invented languages in print.

HASH(0x909d8948) von 5 Sternen A good introduction to the variety of constructed languages. 22. November 2013
Von Vijay Rathinasamy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
A very clear and concise overview of several constructed languages across the fields of literature, theater, and even video games (though somehow Hymmnos was missing, which is a shame since it's also a legitimate conlang). It also has some tips on making your own language, though it might conflict with the detailed work of Mark Rosenfelder. Still, a must-read for the casual conlanger.

HASH(0x909dac84) von 5 Sternen Interesting but does not teach you the languages. 21. November 2013
Von Anthony P. Libri - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This book is basically just a catalog of the different 'made up languages". It does not give you complete alphabets or instructions on how to speak the languages,. It is basically a list and that's it.

Great book. While it doesn't delve too much into each individual language, but it does cover large amount of languages, and gives good information on each.
