About Papylonian A nooblang I started creating in middle school (about 10 years ago). Back then I had no grasp of linguistics and the goal was to create the perfect language (how naïve). It was mostly influenced by German and Esperanto. It stuck with me and became a playground to test the features of languages I found interesting. It's a mix of everything and I publish it mainly for historical purposes.
The back story is as follows: the Babylonian people fled their land after the fall of Babylon. They formed a diaspora mostly living in Europe. Papylonian (in early forms of Papylonian the diminutive was formed by devoicing the consonants, thus Babylon -> Papylon) is basically their Yiddish.
