Brooding

Brooding is my first language commission, which I got through the Language Creation Society. It was commissioned by the Riddlesbrood Touring Theater Company. Brooding has been used in several of their shows, as well as the novel Riddlesbrood: The Greatest Brochure In The World.

After developing this language, I needed to pass on stewardship of the language to BenJamin P. Johnson. Riddlesbrood wanted to commission further development of the language, and all of my effort at the time was devoted to writing Unwritten. Jamin has done a terrific job extending the language.

Brooding was featured in the documentary Conlanging: The Art of Crafting Tongues. I even appear in the move for a minute or two (in my pre-transition state).

For this commission, I provided a grammar, a finished orthography, a font, and a small lexicon.
