This Books section of The Conlanger's Library contains both fiction and nonfiction of which every good conlanger should be aware.
There are a few books which conlangers (and aspiring conlangers) should consider Essential Titles:
- Arika Okrent's In the Land of Invented Languages (2009) (More information here, here, and here)
- Mark Rosenfelder's The Language Construction Kit (2010) (More information here and here)
- Thomas E. Payne's Describing Morphosyntax (1997) (More information here and here)
- J.C. Catford's A Practical Introduction to Phonetics (2002) (More information here and here)
Beside many items in The Conlanger's Library are links to vendor affiliate sites (Book Depository and Indie Bound ). The Language Creation Society receives a portion of all the purchases made through these sites. We have removed, at present, links to Amazon.com pages. In the event that Amazon reinstates its affiliate program in California, we will consider re-adding Amazon.com links to the items on these pages.
There is also a WorldCat search link available to assist readers in locating resources through their local library.
