Natural Influencer (NI)
Category: Environment Theory
Natural influencers which influence most conlangers when they make conlangs. Languages in developed countries, languages with many users and old languages which greatly influenced the present-day languages in developed countries are natural influencers e.g. English, French, German, Spanish, Greek, Latin, Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic.
Conlanging is a kind of refined and intelligent works. So people who can do conlanging are usually a learned person and often have enough time to make conlangs. Palestinian refugees usually don’t have enough time and money to make conlangs. They are doing their best only to live. However, under such terrible conditions, some children might make code-like conlangs for pleasure, but their conlangs are no more than cipher.
Conlangs are not ubiquitous in the world. Most conlangs are unevenly distributed, with most in rich countries like USA, England, France, Germany, Japan and so on. It is much easier to find a conlang in Japan than to find one in Benin, Africa.
And it means most conlangers are unevenly distributed, with most in Europe, America, Japan and so on. Most conlangers are comparatively intelligent and have knowledge of natural languages to some extent. They often have knowledge of English, French, German, Spanish, Greek, Latin, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, and so on to some extent, but they hardly have more knowledge of Frisian, Faroese, Polynesian languages, Micronesian languages and languages in Africa than of English. It means knowledge of natural languages which conlangers have is unbalanced in the world.
Knowledge of natural influencers always influence conlangers when they make conlangs, so every conlang is influenced by similar natural languages. Natural languages which influence most conlangs or conlangers are natural influencers.
The fact that many conlangs are SVO and nominative-accusative is related to the natural influencer list above (from English to Arabic and so), think I.
The reason why the knowledge of natural languages of conlangers is unbalanced is it is harder to get information on minor languages like Bantu languages than on major languages like English, French, German on the Net or books. If conlangers will avoid the influence from natural influencers intentionally, it is hard for them to get information about minor languages, and they usually end in being influenced by natural influencers.
