About Golve Golve is a language I started with the intention of making a kind of nordic version of Portuguese, so I picked the things I like the most about some languages that I know, like Icelandic (mainly), German, French and Hungarian, and I started to think how I wanted my language to look/sound like. First of all I looked at the keyboard of my phone and I chose the letters that were available and that I liked the most, so this way I would be able to write in Golve in phone just using it's own keyboard. I saw those letters and I chose how which one of them would sound like. After it was decided I had to create a vocabulary based on Portuguese, this way I would remember the words more easily by association. But after a while I didn't like how things were sounding, so I said "screw it! I'm gonna make the vocabulary sound as beautiful as I can to me" and now when I make new words I try to relate them to Portuguese still, but if I don't feel that the word will sound good, I just make some random word up. And now I really like the way it's going, no pressure... Making languages for me is a hobbie and I really care about aesthetics and how the language will be written and how it's going to sound, and Golve is the further I've ever gotten in terms of conlanging, I'm really proud of it, but it's a whole language, there's a lot to do still!
