Shouldn’t making a language be easy?

After all, we all made languages as kids. Pig Latin, for example.

And if I wanted a different-sounding language, couldn’t I just have set up all the consonants

and all the vowels

and wherever an English word had a b, put a c instead, and d for c, and so on for the vowels as well?

For one, that wouldn’t give me a language, only a modular cipher. A cipher can always be turned back into its original language. Languages do not always allow for one-to-one translation.

Towards this end, I will attempt to comment on features of languages that must exist, for them to make sense, and explain how my constructed language deals with such features. Stay tuned.
