Kamya is my current long-term project. Set in modern-day south-eastern Europe, it is intended to be a (more or less) naturalistic and, more importantly, coherent language.

I began Kamya in 2018 and have been working on it on and off ever since. It has gone on to become the most developed language I’ve worked on to date, both in terms of grammar and vocabulary. It’s also one of the projects I’m more satisfied with, hence my willingness to make material on it available.

The first time information on Kamya was shared publicly was in November 2020 when its “focus suffix” was featured in Episode 4 of Artifexian’s WLRST series (see original document here).

Next, in March 2021, I gave a presentation entitled The exponence of grammatical number in Kamya at the Digital Language Creation Conference. The slides for this talk can be seen here, the clipped video here and that day’s full livestream here.

In 2022, I wrote an article called Topics in adjectival meaning in Kamya which was published in the fifth issue of r/conlang’s journal Segments on the semantic ranges of nine adjectives. The entire issue can be accessed here on the Reddit post announcing its publication.

Reference grammar extracts

My reference grammar for Kamya currently stands at around 300–350 pages and a list of its current chapters is given below, including links to PDFs of polished extracts that I’m gradually uploading.1

  1. Since these PDFs are produced from TeX files including cross-references to locations outside the extracts in the isolated documents, you will see undefined cross-references (i.e. ??) in certain places. ↩︎
