Under development of language refers to the emergence of new individual languages , either as a result of a natural process (→ Natural Language ) or by the (planned) human intervention (→ Constructed Language ) take place can.
The Indo-European languages , which developed from the hypothetical Ur-Indo-European , can be cited as an example of the natural development of independent languages . Another example - within Indo-European - are the Romance languages , which developed from Vulgar Latin . In a similar way, the Slavic languages (also belonging to the Indo-European language family ) developed from the unified Primeval Slavic .
The linguistic revitalization is related to the artificial process of language creation. Modern Hebrew ( Ivrit ) was created in this way, as well as the (New) Czech language , whose written (revitalized) version is based on an old translation of the Bible, from which today's diglossia in Bohemia comes.
The Cornish , which has not been handed down sufficiently, was based on its similarity to the Welsh and Breton revitalized. This Neukornisch is therefore not a direct continuation of the (at the language level of Spätkornischen ) extinct language (rather Neokornisch based on the Mittelkornischen), which is often criticized.
Another possibility is the creation of a new language by expanding a constructed language. Planned languages , in particular, are suspected of growing into a language with native speakers in the future .
