From the Editor

This is a particularly hard year. We’re living through a

global pandemic, a hostile and sometimes outright violent

political climate, and concerns about civilization’s slow response

to the climate crisis that seems to be, for reasons unknown, sitting

on the backburner. But in this time of great social upheaval and

societal unrest, artists of all kinds have shined a light in the

perpetual cloud of pessimism. Conlangers are no exception.

Throughout the pandemic, conlangers have taken on herculean

translation and writing projects and even spent their time learning

others’ languages to build up friendships and bring life to one

another’s creations. I’m so incredibly proud to present you with

the work of three new contributors in this second edition of

Vatum. As always, I thank them for their patience and for their

willingness to share their breathtaking work with the wider

conlanging community. nItebHa’ maqonjaj!

The Old Man and His Four Sons

François Mathevet (Diarrza)

Here, I present to you my conlang : Diarrza.
It’s a freely inspired celto-gemanish language. Moreover, it’s
inspired from Breton (Brezhoneg) and Standard Irish (Gaeilge), and,
really lightly, German (Deutsch.)

Diarrza is entirely presented on the net on L’Atelier :





These texts which I’ve translated come from the

showcase2019 of the Reddit : r/conlangs.

as in Breton: flexible syntax with topicalization : a variable particle
according to the function of what is topicalized
three genders, varying in importance according to dialect: feminine,
masculine, neutral
four dialects

– declination by prefixing instead of mutations
– German-style lexical agglomeration with mutation (slightly different

from those taking place for declensions)

– principle of mutations up to 3 orders more according to the API (Celtic

emancipation, just one inspiration)
an alphabet of monocameral Latin origin based on the tiny islander: Irish
sentences begin with a mid-point and do not end.

An old man had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn a

He asked them to go and look at a pear tree that was far

So, when the Winter came he asked his eldest son to go
and take look at this pear tree. Similarly, he asked his
second son to go there in the Spring. The third one was
sent there in Summer and the old man asked his youngest
son to go there in the fall.

After listening to each one of them, the old man said, «No

He continued, «If you give up when it’s winter, you will

meli-mini pi sako-lava loje “Salalo”

Helmut Voigt (toki mi)

After having dealt with Bislama, Tok Pisin, and conlangs like
Lojban, Sona, Esperanto and Toki Pona, I decided to create a
conlang (toki mi = my/our language) which combines the
advantages of these languages (simple pronunciation and writing,
clear rules with very few exceptions, limited vocabulary, ease of
expression, etc.) while being easier to learn and use.

At present, toki mi comprises 277 words. The alphabet has 9
consonants (p, t, k, l, m, n, j, s, v) and 5 vowels (a, e, i, o, u).There
is no morphology of words, but phrase separators are used to provide
the sentence structures by marking subject, predicate, object, etc.

No toki mi word is longer than four letters (two syllables CVCV),
but two-word phrases can be written without space, e.g. lilami
(li=animal, lami=hair; mammal). The words are in part derivates
from other natural and constructed languages and in part my own

As not all possible syllable combinations are used so far, new words
may be added later (in case of urgent necessity only).


My toki mi facebook page for discussing anything regarding toki mi
is called “Tokimi”-Gruppe.

(The hyphens used in the first few sentences show how
compound words are formed. Most words consist of four letters,
some of three, very few of two letters only.)

The grandmother lived out in the woods. When Little
Red Riding Hood entered the woods, she saw a wolf . She
did not know that he was a wicked animal. The wolf
said, “Good day to you, Little Red Riding Hood.» –
«Good day, wolf.» – «Where are you going, Little Red
Riding Hood?» – «I’m going to my grandmother’s
house.» – «And what are you carrying under your
apron?» – «I have cake and wine. My mother baked the
cake yesterday to make grandmother strong.» – «Little
Red Riding Hood, where does your grandmother live?» –
«In a little while, I’ll come to her house. Three large trees
are standing next to the house. You certainly know the

The wolf thought to himself: «The little girl is a tasty bite
for me. The grandmother is a tasty meal, too.” For a
short time, he went beside her and said: «Little Red
Riding Hood, haven’t you seen the beautiful flowers?
Why don’t you go and take a look? Do you hear how
beautifully the birds are singing? You are walking along
as though you were on your way to school, but it is very
beautiful in the woods.»

Little Red Riding Hood saw the sunlight and the
beautiful flowers. She thought: «I’ll take a bouquet to
grandmother, she will be very pleased.” She picked the
flowers away from the path. The wolf ran straight to the
grandmother’s house and knocked on the door. «Who’s
there?» – «I’m Little Red Riding Hood. I’m bringing you
some cake and wine.» – «Little Red Riding Hood, just
press the latch. I’m too weak and can’t open the door.»
The wolf opened the door, stepped inside without
speaking, and ate the grandmother. Then he put her
clothes on and put her cap on his head and got into her

Little Red Riding Hood gathered many flowers and went
to her grandmother’s house. She asked herself, “Why is
the door open?” She felt a bit uneasy. She said, “Granny,
good day!” Nobody answered. Little Red Riding
Hood went to the bed and saw the grandmother , but her
cap covered her face. She was looking strange. «Oh,
grandmother, why are your ears so big?» – «All the better
to hear you with.» – «Oh, grandmother, why are your
eyes so big?» – «All the better to see you with.» – «Oh,
grandmother, why are your hands so big?» – «All the
better to grab you with!» – «Oh, grandmother, why do
you have such a horribly big mouth?» – «All the better to
eat you with!» And with that he jumped out of bed and
ate up Little Red Riding Hood.

As soon as the wolf had finished eating, he climbed back
into bed, fell asleep, and began to snore very loudly. A
huntsman was just passing by and heard the snore. He
stepped inside, saw the wolf, and said, «What a beast!
Now I’ve got you!” At first, he wanted to kill him with
his gun. But he thought, “He has eaten the grandmother,
but perhaps she is still alive inside him. I won’t shoot
him.» He cut open his belly with a pair of scissors and
saw the red cap. He cut a little more, and the girl jumped
out and cried: «Oh, I was so frightened! It was so dark
inside the wolf’s body!» And then the grandmother came
out alive as well. Then Little Red Riding Hood fetched
some large heavy stones. They filled the wolf’s body with
them, and when he woke up and tried to run away, the
stones were so heavy that he fell down dead.

The three of them were very happy. The huntsman took
the wolf’s pelt and went home. The grandmother ate the
cake, drank the wine and felt stronger. Little Red Riding
Hood thought to herself: «As long as I live, I will never
leave the path in the woods. I’ll always listen to what my
mother tells me.


The Antioch Lecture by Sandra Gutiérrez, 13 March

Stephen DeGrace (Common, na Xafen)


The New World Order is the dominant governmental authority in
the world today [about 100 years in our future], claiming to be the
sole, rightful global sovereignty and effectively ruling the entire
planet except or a few tiny pockets of resistance which are
embargoed but left alone because they possess nuclear weapons.
Their official and main working language is Common (natively ‘na
Xafen’ /na ‘ʃa.ven/), which was invented for an early 21st century
TV show. By a number of twists of fate, it ended up being adopted
by the incipient Globalist mass movement, which had an overlap
with the TV show fan base, as a code language and eventually
becoming the lingua franca of their global hegemony, actively
displacing and replacing natural languages. Sandra Gutiérrez was an
early Globalist activist and intellectual, who is famous for writing
the Globalist Manifesto. This piece is a translation of a talk she gave
in Antioch California in 2025.

Common’s creative process is that it is entirely blogged – no work is
done in any other medium. The link above is to the original record.
The blog is written in the in-world voice of ‘Trafalgar’, a British
adventurer and academic who left the Free State of Britain, travelled
the New World Order, and then returned to share what she learned.
She puts her writings online to provide unvarnished information to
fellow Britons and anyone form the NWO who might gain illicit
access, and she writes under a pseudonym to protect her and her


family from any backlash from any controversial opinions expressed.
Everything beyond this point is in Trafalgar’s voice.


In this article, we will look at an excerpt of an informal lecture given
by Sandra Gutiérrez to a mixed group consisting primarily of
businesspeople on 13 March 2025. Gutiérrez, who today is
remembered as the Globalist hero who wrote the original Globalist
Manifesto, was invited by the President of the Antioch, California
Chamber of Commerce, himself a Globalist, to give a public lecture
in Antioch on Globalism.

Gutiérrez was known as a humble person with a kind and
approachable demeanour who would go anywhere and spread the
word about Globalism to anyone, and in Antioch she enjoyed a
sceptical but receptive audience. Most of this talk was captured on a
mobile phone and later posted to social media and transcribed,
which is why it is a rare example to survive to the present day of the
dozens of public lectures, often to small groups, that Gutiérrez
delivered over the years.

Translation Notes

This translation is one I prepared myself from English to give a sense
of how this piece of early Globalist history would look in Common.
It is certainly not the Common that Gutiérrez herself would have
used – her Common, such as it was, would have been essentially Old
Common, and would be quite different in grammar and word choices
than mine. I used modern High Common, although I tried to capture
a bit of the feeling of the time by not using too many loanwords.

I did not attempt a word-for-word translation at all, and I framed
things in such a way as to sound good in Common. One interesting
thing that comes out of the translation is that while Gutiérrez glosses
over some more controversial aspects of the Globalist program in


this part of her lecture – such as the need to exclude non-Globalists
from public life, and that the elimination of national sovereignty also
means the abolition of self-determination for indigenous societies –
the Common translation lays the latter point a little more bare. The
phrase ‘na naxys trit’ means ‘national rule’ (the best translation for
‘national sovereignty’ in Common), the word ‘naxys’ doesn’t
distinguish at all between colonial-era nation-states and stateless
indigenous societies.

Historical Context

The lecture was delivered early into President Donald Trump Jr.’s
first term. By this point in US history, the nation had gone through
Trump Sr.’s re-election with a minority of the popular vote (he won
via a loophole in the American system called the ‘electoral college’
that was designed to give more weight to smaller states) and credible
allegations of widespread vote rigging, followed by waves of violent
protests, with anti-Trump protests and pro-Trump counter-protests
sweeping the nation, and the indefinite jailing of some of the Trump
regime’s political opponents, including 77-year-old former Trump
adversary Hillary Clinton, who was technically retired at the time of
her arrest. Then there had been Trump Sr.’s death in office in 2022
of apparently natural causes, and the short-lived Presidency of Vice
President Sean Hannity. Millions had died in the botched response
to the COVID-23 pandemic just the previous year.

The bloody Iran War quagmire was still dragging on with tens of
thousands dead and no end in sight. Tankers from the then-oil-rich
Persian Gulf region were mostly unwilling to risk the Straits of
Hormuz, disrupting critical global energy supplies and sending prices
chronic mismanagement and cavalier disregard for international
institutions by the Trump regime had sent the world’s largest
economy, and indeed, most of the world, into a protracted economic








At the time Gutiérrez gave her lecture in Antioch, the global
economy was rapidly deteriorating but President Donald Trump Jr.
had not yet defaulted on the US national debt. This action on the
part of Trump would rapidly collapse the entire global financial
system and is usually taken by historians to mark the true beginning
of the Global Financial Collapse and the Global Collapse in general.
Gutiérrez gave her lecture literally within months of the beginning
of the end of the world as she and her audience knew it.

At this point in history, Americans and people everywhere had a
strong belief that something was deeply wrong with the world, but
their daily lives and world view still existed in a continuity with the
old post-World War II international order, and their cultural
outlook was still very much pre-Collapse. The Federal government
was still in control of the United States, and most people had
consistent and relatively easy access to food, water, electricity,
shelter and, if they could afford it, even medical care. This was very
much still the pre-Collapse world, even if it was arguably taking its
last breaths.

The world was feeling the very beginnings of the impact of global
warming at this time, but environmental stresses were not yet the
dominant driver of the growing global strife, and there was a very
significant faction in the United States, associated with the
Republican party, which flat-out refused to believe the science or the
evidence, and there were no truly significant measures being taken
globally at this time to combat climate change – another way in
which the society at the time of the Antioch Lecture was
recognisably continuous with the pre-Collapse norms. However,
people at this time were very much aware of climate change, and it
was a major political issue.

The United States at this time was deeply polarised between the
Republican party, which was the party of the Trump regime, and the
Democratic party opposition, which was dominant in a few parts of
the country but mostly was on the ropes, and with no meaningful

influence federally. The Globalists had a strong affinity for the
Democrats, but that didn’t necessarily work in reverse. Plus there
were many, many other surging ideological factions who might
notionally favour one side or the other but which regarded the
traditional parties as hopelessly out of touch. California at the time
of Gutiérrez’s address was most definitely not Trump country,
which is how she could deliver such an address and not be killed on
the spot given the climate at the time.

Sandra Gutiérrez

Sandra Gutiérrez was born Alexander Gutiérrez in Sacramento,
California on May 12, 1975 to parents of Mexican descent. Her first
language was English, although she spoke Spanish fluently. She also
eventually learnt to speak Common, although she was never fluent
in speech and was never considered a truly eloquent writer in
Common. Her work was mostly in English.

in 2003 from the University of California

Gutiérrez earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy specialising in political
Berkeley. She had a strong start to her career and became a lecturer
at the University of California, Davis, close to her hometown of
Sacramento, in 2004. By 2015, she had managed to become a tenured
full professor. This became important, because in the American
academic system at the time, tenure gave professors strong
protection for their positions, and Gutiérrez would evolve from
espousing a fairly typical, liberal political philosophy to expressing
some decidedly heterodox views that some found quite bizarre or

Gutiérrez came out of the closet as a trans woman in 1995 when she
was in her undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley. At the time, this
was an incredibly brave thing to do, as trans people faced intense
social and legal discrimination and were frequently the targets of
violence. All that Gutiérrez was able to accomplish in her life despite
facing these headwinds was remarkable. Throughout her life, she


was a tireless advocate for LGBTQ acceptance and rights, and in
particular she volunteered extensively for queer youth outreach. She
spoke frankly about the bullying and suicidal feelings she had gone
through in her youth, and how she wanted to do whatever she could
so that young people in future would not have to go through what
she did. By the time of the Antioch lecture, however, there had been
tremendous advances in trans acceptance, and her gender identity
would not have been as much of an issue to her audience then as it
would have been in years past.

Gutiérrez married her wife and long-time partner, noted physicist
Shanice Jones, in 2013 when same-sex marriage was relegalised in
California. They remained together until Gutiérrez’s death, despite
the fact that Jones strongly disagreed with Gutiérrez on the topic of

As the Global Collapse wound on and Globalism gained significant
ground, Gutiérrez gained more and more prominence as a speaker
and writer on Globalism, and then became an early leader of the
movement. She was highly respected in the movement and
considered one of its greatest and most eloquent advocates. In 2026,
when the California Globalist Association decided they needed a
Manifesto to promote the cause, they asked Gutiérrez to write it.
She did, with the help and input of a handful of other Globalist
intellectuals from across the planet with whom she collaborated over
the internet, and her final document was so admired that it was
quickly adopted by Globalist movements around the world in well
over fifty translations. The modern Globalist Manifesto that is part
of the New World Order Global Charter is the direct descendent
of Gutiérrez’s document.

It is for this accomplishment that Gutiérrez is remembered today,
and even in her time, she became in a sense ‘THE Globalist’, even
though she herself tried to deflect this attention, saying she was but
one of many who had worked on the Manifesto and who toiled for
the movement as a whole.


Sandra Gutiérrez died on 5 Aug 2041 at the age of 66 in the successful
Texan nuclear strike on Sacramento. She was survived by her wife
Shanice, who died of appendicitis in 2043. They had no children.

A question I get a lot is, ‘What is Globalism,
anyway? Isn’t it that thing that Trump says is
taking away all our jobs? How can you be in
favour of that?’ Well, that’s not what Globalism


is. Globalists don’t want to take away your jobs,
on the contrary, we want to restore a strong and
sustainable economy. At its base, Globalism is
simply about seeing reality, understanding that
humanity itself is in imminent danger, and doing
what it takes to protect humanity. That’s really
it – it’s not complicated at all.

First you have to understand, our whole species is
in trouble. We all know about global warming.
That’s a civilisation-ending threat. But it’s about
more than that. Did you know that 75% of the
fisheries in the ocean are at risk of collapse? That
95% of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, a vast
and irreplaceable ecosystem, is dead? This is just
the tip of the rapidly melting iceberg. If global
warming threatens the survival of humanity as
we know it, what do you think will happen when
we pile on with the collapse of most of the world’s


ecosystems at once due to the actions of humanity
on top of that?

It’s not just ecological catastrophe we have to
worry about. There is also war. There’s the
President’s foolish and vain Iran war that has
thousands of Americans, and don’t
forget the tens of thousands of Iraqis and Iranians
and others in the Middle East who have been
killed in this war as well! I’m here to tell you, the
Iran War is nothing. With the breakdown of the
international systems that kept the peace for the
last eighty years, war between more powerful and
evenly matched Great Powers is inevitable, and
with the weapons we have now, it will make


World War Two look like a joke. That’s to say
nothing of nuclear weapons. If we have them, we
will eventually use them. War on this scale
equally threatens human survival.

imminent, and

These threats to human survival are real and
they are more
important than any other concern we may have.
The Globalist message is that these threats have
a single common cause: national sovereignty.
National sovereignty creates the Tragedy of the
Commons that has rendered us unable to stop
from poisoning our planet, and
national sovereignty creates the inevitability of

There is only one solution. National sovereignty
must be abolished. The Earth must be united
under a single government. The unity of
humanity must be recognised. Every possible
action that can take us one step closer to this goal
must be taken, and this must be done without


delay. That, essentially, is Globalism. For the
rest of my talk, I’m going to dive into these points
in detail. If you accept the factual truth of these
twin threats to human survival and you accept
the necessity of ensuring human survival, as I
hope to persuade you, then you must accept


Two Stories in tlhIngan Hol

Jack Bradley (tlhIngan Hol1)

While I create my own languages all the time, I decided not
to include any literary work done in those for this issue. Rather, I
decided to present some of the work of I’ve done in preexisting
conlangs. Namely, Klingon (tlhIngan Hol.) I’m sure I’m not
shocking anyone when I say that I love the Klingon language. From
its phonology to its grammatical structure, ever single bit of it calls
out to me. If I go a whole day without using it at least some,
something’s is very wrong, call the ambulance, Jack’s having a
stroke. One of the joys of Klingon is its tight-knit community, all the
inside baseball, and, of course, the fun stories that we tell ourselves.
There’s a strong Klingon-language oral story practice which has
grown out of the Klingon Language Institute’s qep’a’ and what’s
known as the qaDHommey. These are little, sometimes improvised
stories created off of a prompt (either a single word or a whole
sentence or phrase.) Recently, however, I’ve made some attempts to
get the ball rolling on some Klingon writing projects so as to grow
the corpus of original works written in our beautiful tongue. (Yes,
our language—not Paramount’s.) I started out with small stuff and
my efforts have since ballooned into a full-blown novel. Here, I’d
like to share with the whole conlanging community two very short
stories that I wrote in the past two years. The first is an adaptation
of one of Aesop’s fables, wherein a farmer tests out a new horse
before committing to keep it for good. The second is a wholly
original myth I created about the birth of the stars in the universe as
the result of a sneaky servant. Hoch vIqonta’bogh botIv ‘e’ vItulqu’!

One day an old farmer visited a nearby village.
He needed to acquire a new horse there. So he
went to the horse-seller and found a horse that
seemed good enough. But because the farm was
advanced in age, he had become wise. And
because he was wise, he was cautious. Before he
was willing to buy the horse that he had chosen,
he wanted to try it out. The horse-seller said that
he was willing to lend the workhorse out to the
farmer. He doubted that the farmer would be
disappointed since it was a particularly strong
horse, this beast that the farmer had found. So,
the farmer returned to his farm, leading the horse
he had found and led him to the stables, next to
where all the other horses were.

Varied were the sorts of horses that the farmer
had. He had both hardy and weak horses though
each was diligent. However, one horse was lazier
than all the others put together. It would not work
and it was stubborn and it even tried to bite the
farmer on occasion. The horse which that farmer
had borrowed walked over next to this horse and
when the farmer saw what had happened, he
immediately went back to the village and gave the
borrowed horse back to the horse-seller. The seller
said «Impossible! You took it back to your farm
just moments ago! You haven’t even had an
opportunity to see it work yet!» The farm replied,
saying «I have seen it choose its companions and
that was enough.»

In an ancient time, while the universe was still
new and there were no humanoids about, there
was only a single god. His name was T’yan. He
was the great creator and when he spoke,
something would appear and when he became
wroth, the whole universe would shake because of
his voice’s might. One day, T’yan was walking
and thinking. Suddenly, he stopped walking and
said «It is too dark! As I walk, I cannot see the
path before me. I cannot even see my palms, nor

And because he was so very wise, T’yan decided
to create Tamg’ai, the light. He said «Tamg’ai,
And as soon as he said this, the light appeared
before him.
T’yan said «Tamg’ai, I have created you so that
I may see, therefore always light what is in front
of me. Because of you, I shall always be able to
see the path before me.»
Tamg’ai responded, saying «I shall do so, sire. I
swear to always serve you.»
So Tamg’ai became T’yan’s lightbearer and for a
very long time, he led the great creator along his
way as he examined his vast kingdom. For that
time, the light was perfectly leal and when his
master commanded him, he obeyed. Never he
was insubordinate. But T’yan was foul of mood
and never allowed Tamg’ai to rest. After a time,
the subordinate became jealous and resented his
master and so began to plot to bring him down.

One day, as T’yan was napping, the light hid.
When the great creator awoke, he quickly
realized that Tamg’ai was not there and became
enraged. He searched everywhere in the dark
universe for Tamg’ai and because he thought that
the light was hiding behind a planet, he destroyed
many worlds.
He ran and cried out and was very violent.
Eventually, because he had run so much and
cried out so much and had been so violent, he
tired and collapsed, panting.
It was then that Tamg’ai unhid himself and
attacked his master. He hit his head forcefully.
Kicked his chest. Insulted him. T’yan fell and his
whole body visibly ached. Tamg’ai believed that
he had successfully defeated him and so took out
his club to finish what he had begun and
approached T’yan. But as he readied himself for
the attack, quickly and suddenly T’yan stood up


and took the club from out of Tamg’ai’s hands.
The light begged for mercy, weeping.

Said he «My lord, I speak respectfully: I am

pride and now I understand my error. No one can
defeat you. Your might is absolute. I plead for
your mercy. I can still be useful to you. You
mustn’t put an end to my days. Please spare me,
For some seconds, T’yan did not answer. He was
perfectly silent. His eyes were
filled with
lightning-like wrath. His strength was as
fearsome as a lion’s.
Finally, the great creator answered, saying
«Today, I shall divy you up and spread your
pieces all throughout the universe. Your days


shall know no end and you shall suffer as you
continue to light my path endlessly.»
Then he broke Tamg’ai into pieces. He picked up
the pieces and threw them in a bag. Then he
walked throughout his kingdom, spreading the
pieces all about. So, as a way of punishing his
unfaithful servant, T’yan, the first god, created
day and night.
