An engineered language (or short, engelang) is a conlang designed to test or prove some hypothesis about how languages work or might work. Usually, engineered languages have testable design goals, such as unambiguity or self-segregation. Two important subgroups of engineered languages are philosophical languages and logical languages.

Engineered languages are usually not associated with worldbuilding and have no concultures attached.
