Occidental (aka. Interlingue) is a constructed auxiliary language first invented in 1922 by Edgar de Wahl. On the surface it’s a naturalistic language, but what I like about it is how it’s actually distilled the really-existing rules about word derivation in the Romance languages and English into a highly regular schema. That is, even though it looks naturalistic, it lacks the irregularities and exceptions of other naturalistic auxlangs. I started learning it in June 2022.

Did you know? I also have a wiki page called ‘Occidental’! If you want to check that out, you can do so here.
