Sevorian (formerly J2): That North Slavic conlang

Jameld is a constructed language, a language which has been designed -- in this case for personal amusement and enlightenment, and to explore the possibilities and workings of language within a familiar environment (viz. as an imaginary member of the Germanic language family, related to Dutch, Frisian and German). It is also the framework around which an embryonic fictional culture and some astonishingly lame humour have been assembled. You will find fragments of all the above elements scattered throughout this site, along with the occasional nugget of linguistic detail. There is now a bilingual Jameld dictionary available, along with a grammar and other documentation.

This site is named after the now-defunct newsletter Zolid Matters which was published between 1992 and 1997, a journal which both promoted the use of Jameld (with some small success) and provided the editor with an excuse to write jokes about llamas. You can read all of the old issues in the ZM Archive, should you feel the need.
