The Conlanger Test 1.1

Original quiz (on WayBackMachine)

Last update: 21 June 2017

Being a compendium of conlanging lore, experiences, rites of passage, and humour, all masquerading as a test.

This Test is, obviously, inspired by the Hacker test. I welcome further suggestions for new questions and alterations to existing ones, and would like to point out that the test is not specifically designed to give myself the highest possible score :-)

Score one point for each question to which you can answer "yes", unless otherwise indicated. You are allowed some leeway in interpreting the questions; it's not all that important anyway.

This version of the test was created by Geoff Eddy with help from assorted members of the Zompist Bulletin Board, and modified by Uruwi (bluebear94).
