About Nlaikamea The main languages of the human races in my fantasy world of Nlīkamēa, as well as an important worldwide language for the other races.
Four hundred years ago, the important King Alotjus ordered the human languages to be combined into one, so all people could communicate with one another easier. After many years, the 20 scholars chosen to work on this project delivered the earliest version of this language, which was remarkably simple as to allow it to evolve naturally, which it has.
In modern times, it is the most spoken language in the Kentar (human) Language Family (around 200,000,000 first language speakers, 350,000,000 second languages and half a billion low-competency speakers) and an official language in all but a handful of all nations, human or not.

Most importantly, it is my first conlang and the best project I have ever undertaken as it pulled me into both conlanging and world-building.
