  1. Hi Tasha !

    I’m Olivier Simon (from France), the inventor of the auxlang Sambahsa, based on modernized PIE. The description of the language you’re looking for is attractive to me, as I know some Gothic and Icelandic (which is very similar to Old Norse) and of course other IE languages, including PIE. As I’m still jobless, I have time to consecrate to your project. Please contact me at cafaristeir@yahoo.com (my “official” address is different and I don’t use it on the Net in order to avoid spams, but I’ll give it to you as soon as I’ll get your reply).
    Thanks a lot !

    Hey Tasha,

    Your proposal sounds interesting, I’d be very happy to create a Germanic-like language, especially since it’s more related to Old Norse. I’m learnng Swedish and I North Germanic languages are my favourite IE branch. My native language is Slovene and I study English and Chinese at my university but I’m also fluent in Italian and I’ve studied several other languages (Spanish, French, Finnish); additionally also Icelandic, Faroese and Old English, but to a lesser extent. I’m also interested in mythology, especially the Nordic mythology, and I’ve learnt runes as well since I use them as an alternative writing system for one of my conlangs.

    I’ve created several conlangs so far, most of them tend to be naturalistic. They are all a priori; the only a posteriori conlangs I’ve made so far is based off Proto-Indo-European.

    You can visit my website to see more details and information regarding my conlangs (it’s being slowly updated).

    Best regards,

    Hello Tasha,

    Your project sounds immensely interesting and rewarding; I would love to be a part of it. While I don’t actually speak Old Norse or any of its descendants, I find North Germanic languages among the most beautiful languages in on Earth, and have already attempted at least one North-Germanic-like conlang (modeled mostly on Swedish, but with a large amount of a-priori influence). I particularly like Icelandic and Faroese, and would enjoy the opportunity to create a conlang influenced by them.

    You can contact me at kechpaja -at- comcast.net — I look forward to hearing from you!

  4. Dear Tasha,

    I’m intrigued by the description of the job, and would love to learn more about it and (hopefully) develop a language for you. I am a real fan of the Germanic language family, and have taught myself Old English, as well as a smattering of Old Norse, Old Saxon, and Old Frisian. I’ve also been working on a descendant of Anglo-Saxon called West Saxon, the grammar of which you may see by clicking on my name. I will note that it is still very much a work in progress, and is very sketchy in most parts. Hopefully, however, it will show the sort of detail I might be able to bring to your project.

    If you are interested in learning more about my qualifications, or how I might approach your language, I would be happy to discuss it with you. Feel free to send me any questions you might have, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey,

    I teach Icelandic to foreigners and completed a university degree in the language, in which I studied Old Norse and its evolution extensively, as well as its literature and history. I speak or understand all the languages of Scandinavia (including Finnish and Northern Sámi). I’m also very avid for anthropology and genetics. I’d be interested in working with you on something which is so central to my interests – language design and Old Norse.
