Jashan A'al is a name itself taken from an unnamed (and now lost) conlang, meaning "twilight" or "bridge." I am primary a conlanger and dabble in concultures, rather full-scale conworlds.

I study and create conlangs with a variety of aims: to create aesthetically pleasing languages, to learn more about a specific type of language, to experiment with the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis, or for religious designs. I have been seeking a "perfect" (used very loosely) conlang for the expression of my religious and philosophical ideas, for several years.

My two most establish conlangs are Etora and Psharádi (Modern Tsaran). They share a nearly-identical vocabulary but are radically different in grammatical structure. Etora is gendered [human/animate/inanimate], case-declining [nom/acc/dat/abl], and SOV structure; Psharádi is ungendered, uncased, and SVO order (save in certain situations).
