Basically tried to create a kit for express creation of fairly good (although lexically limited) conlangs. It contains 8 pronoun categories,
9 basic conjunctions/adverbs, 13 adpositions/cases and modal verbs, and 52 other words – with derivation suggestions and hints.

I, we [and their variations]
you [and their variations]
they [and their variations]
all, every, each, yes, universe
no, nothing, neither
this, that [and their variations]
some, any, a few, whatever
what, who, where, when

Think of honorifics,
vocative, and formality

Can merge both, or use
«this» for inanimate 3P

Do you want dual or

Spanish uses «que» for
«what», «that», and «than»

and, thus, so, too
but, in contrary, instead
or, either … or, whether
that [conj], which [rel. pron.], to, than, as
yet, still, unprepared
already, ready
a lot, many, much

You can build superlative
using «more/less than all».
There might be adjective
inflections meaning «very»,
like guapísima in Spanish

You have to choose your alignment, and which case is unmarked (if
applicable). How do morphosyntactic alignment and number interact?

for the sake of, dedicated to, instead of or BENEFACTIVE
towards, for or ALLATIVE
from, because of or ABLATIVE
near, by, together with or PROXIMITIVE/COMITATIVE
in, at, on or LOCATIVE
like, -ish [adjective derivation or SEMBLATIVE]
away from, off, without or ABESSIVE
through, across, according to or PERLOCATIVE
circle → around or CIRCUMLATIVE
use [v] → with, by (e.g. using) or INSTRUMENTAL

How do you derive verbs from nouns? Do they have an
infinitive form (Bulgarian hasn’t)? Do your verbs express
past, non-past, other tenses, and if the action is or will be
complete? Continuous aspect? Person and animacy? Is
evidentiality/certainty part of the conjugation, or do you
use auxiliaries or modal verbs to say «maybe», «should be»,
«is said to be», «could happen»? Do you differentiate
between realis and irrealis moods? How do you give orders
in your language, are there levels of politeness?

Do you have a copula (verb «to be»)? How do you say «to
become» or «to be a teacher» (Russian uses instrumental)?

can [v], ability, strong
will, want [v], command [v]
need [v], must [v], have to [v], duty

How do you treat
modal verbs and

How do you say «grandparent»?
Are kinship terms gendered?

How do you form mass
nouns (tree → forest,
book → library)?

human, person → man, woman, folk, people, tribe
child, offspring
parent, care [v]
sibling, cousin
nature, wild, normal
society, cultivate [v] → crops
tree → wood, forest
grassland, grass, field
fruit → fertile, rich, abundant
complete, full, continue [v], fulfill [v], satisfy [v]
desert, void → dry, poor, scarce, empty, hungry
mountain, hill, pile
sea, ocean → salt
water (fresh) → lake, river

Where does your
conculture live? What
items or phenomena
are significiant there?

In case you use
«excluding» and
think of participle
formation. Do
active (and
passive) participles
indicate time? Can
they be used

What creatures and
beings inhabit your
world? Think of what
your conculture uses for
food and what they
have to defend
themselves from,
customize your vocab.


You can replace the
passive voice with
instead of «The car
stolen») or
it with an
auxiliary verb +
passive participle.

walk [v], go [v], run [v], flow [v]
attack [v], jump [v], storm [v]
air, wind, blow [v], whistle [v]
talk [v], speak [v], word → tongue
lead [v] → chief, road
follow [v] → then, next
meet [v], encounter [v] → against
include [v], contain [v] → with
exclude [v], single out [v] → except
case → in case that, if, as
beginning, start, ignite [v] → since
end, cease [v], put off [v] → until

big, strong → very (e.g. bigly)
