Bogolang is a jocular term, popularized, but not coined, by Geoff Eddy, for the result of bogo-linguistics, the process of creating a conlang by applying a model ("Grand Master Plan") of the historical phonology of one natlang to another, usually more or less unrelated natlang.

During December 2009, this term was criticized on the CONLANG list, on the grounds that it, at a glance, seems to have the same meaning as "jokelang". Terms such as "dialang" and "graftlang" were proposed, by a consensus was never reached.
