|Welcome to the website of Der Folkspraakinstitut (The Folkspraak Institute), dedicated to the development and popularization of, and the offering of instruction in, the Folkspraak language. This website, and indeed the creation of the Institute, were inspired by the work of the members and leadership of the Yahoogroups forum "Folkspraak."
Folkspraak is a planned language designed to facilitate intercommunication amongst members of the various contemporary languages of northern Europe derived from an extinct common ancestor, Proto-Germanic. With a regularized grammatical system and a wordstock chosen for high recognizability amongst the speakers of the contemporary Germanic languages, Folkspraak aims to achieve on a regional scale what Esperanto and other planned auxiliary languages have aimed for globally.

|An Urgent Appeal|
|The Folkspraak Institute needs your help!
In order to begin work on a projected FSp chrestomathy, an augmented wordstock is urgently needed.
The FSp vocabulary built to date is insufficiently broad to begin the building of a literature.
It is felt that if - in addition to the already existing words - FSp words were created for each of the 850 words in Ogden's "Basic English" list, work on a chrestomathy could begin in earnest.
Please click below to access the listing of Ogden's "Basic English" wordstock and to help devise needed words. As you can see, some have already been completed (these are only suggestions subject to correction and amendment by the Folkspraakskommunitie.
Many thanks for your kindness and interest!
