About Asper Asper (/'æs.pər/, natively Óxprece /'oʃ.pxe.ke/, sometimes affectionately Spanch) is a Romance language that originated, in primitive forms, c. 2008 in the Natalia region of the protest nation of the Taussick, enclaved in Alameda County, California. Primarily a descendant of Castilian Spanish, Asper's vocabulary is enriched with various influences from languages worldwide, including Portuguese and Italian, but also English, German, Russian, Japanese, and Arabic.

Unique features of the language not common with source languages include an inquisitive mood with distinct conjugations, clusivity, a distinct first-and-second person, a combined long and dipping tone vowel, and a complete lack of gender distinctions throughout the language. Asper makes use of six basic vowel phonemes – /a/, /œ/, /e̞/, /o̞/, /i/, /u/ – all of which may be lengthened, and two nasal vowels with distinct phonemes – /æ̃/ and /ɔ̃/. Asper uses two consonants rare amongst its source languages – /θ/, denoted by Q; and /ŋ/, K.

Asper is a highly regular language. Each letter makes exactly one sound regardless of position. Some common conjugations are consistently abbreviated, but excepting this and some undeclinable interjections and proper nouns (all of which distinctly end in Â), every word can be declined and conjugated in exactly the same way, even when a particular declension may not make logical sense with the word. Though it is not always obvious how a verb relates to a noun (for example, the verb form for "fish" means "to catch fish", but not "to cook" or "breed fish"), any common noun can be coerced into the form of an adjective, verb, adverb, and abiliative verb and adverb – and vice versa, creating roots that can be declined to every possible form, even if the new meaning is illogical ("fishy" makes logical sense; "fishably", less so).

Asper continues to be created and refined by the Academy of the Asper Language in Great Ark City, Riqueza.
