Sites submitted to this category should focus primarily on the linguistic elements of a language or group of languages appropriate to the category.
Fictional languages are created, generally by an individual but sometimes by a group, and not intended primarily as a means of international communication (see International Auxiliary) but as a work of art, a component of a work of fiction, or a tool to study the workings of language. Also included may be attempts to resurrect dead languages, if there is a significant creative effort involved.
Please submit only sites in English that provide general information on Esperanto linguistics, culture, international organization, etc. Sites in Esperanto should be submitted under the World:Esperanto category, and sites in other languages under the corresponding sections of the World category. Regional Esperanto organizations providing information in English can submit their sites here, but should also submit under the appropriate section of the Regional category.

Play languages are also called ludlings.
