Welcome to the Dunia Patwa Wiki!

 

This is an introduction to a language called Dunia Patwa. It is a sort of "world Creole," a new international language created through a mixture of various languages. The main idea behind this language is that with our globalizing world, a new international language will eventually be born, and here I am proposing a structure for it. Generally speaking, creole languages tend to have simplified grammar and phonology, accompanied by longer words and longer sentences to make up for deficiencies in the other areas. As you will see, this language project is based on that idea. In creating it, I tried to take concepts and words fairly from a variety of existing languages. I hope you find it helpful. Access the following pages to learn more.

 

As an additional note, this is not a completed project. The pages are a mess at present. I'm currently compiling the various dictionaries into a database so that they will not have different words, and will upload the new unified file when it's ready.
