Introduction to Xara

Xara is a constructed language. Its vocabulary is invented and is not related to any other human language, although the sound system is designed to be pronounced easily and naturally. The grammar, whilst being synthetic, does contain elements of European usage, and is totally regular. At this stage the main function of Xara is that of a written language used for translation and correspondence. However, as the language expands and changes, it may well develop into a spoken medium.

The main aim of inventing a language such as Xara was to create a personal and creative means of communication that has a precise but flexible grammar and syntax, and a unique vocabulary that has a soft and flowing sound.

Since the initial creation of Xara in May 2000, the language has undergone several developments. The vocabulary has been expanded, and, following the valuable suggestions of several friends who have started to use the language, both the grammar and usage have been extended.

No language, however, stands still. Xara will continue to develop and expand, and I hope to update this site to reflect these changes.

If you are interested in learning Xara, as well as the grammar and phrases sections on this web site, there is a series of lessons which are available via e-mail. If you would like to follow 'The Xara E-mail Correspondence Course' please e-mail me, and I will send you the first lesson.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy your visit to this site and have fun looking into the details of a very new but working language.
