Vulgar: Language generator

Can I request new features?

Yes! Please send feature requests (and bugs) to our subReddit page or [email protected] You can also vote for features on our Trello board.

Can I use a language generated by Vulgar in a published work?

Yes! We do not claim copyright over any languages generated by Vulgar. You are the owner. Nor are your obligated to credit Vulgar in your work. However, we do appreciate the credit! Additionally, if you are using Vulgar for a major work, we would love to hear about it. Vulgar is currently being used in Amazon Game's upcoming MMO New World, and in the creation of the Poison War series by Sam Hawke.

How many languages can I make with the full version?


Could I generate the same language as someone else?

It's practically impossible to produce the same language as someone else unless they gave you the seed number. Each seed number produces a different output, and there are 100 quadrillion possible seed numbers (10 to the power of 17).

Is it compatible with Mac/Linux/other?

Yes. Vulgar is a web-app, not a download.

Why is my seed number producing different results?

If you use any custom settings in the free version, those settings must be re-entered exactly the same as they were (along with the seed number) to get the same output in the full version. Otherwise, the program will output what the seed number would have generated if it was allowed to randomly pick its own settings. Any custom phonemes must be re-entered in the exact same order too, otherwise it will apply different frequencies to those phonemes. For this reason, we strongly recommend saving the settings file (Save Your Language) to avoid input errors.

Finally, different versions of the program will produce different results too. If you were using settings on an old version, see "Access previous versions" at the bottom of the app.

My custom spelling rules are being weird. What's up with that?

It's possible that you need to change the order of your rules.
