List of language regulators


List of language regulators

This is a list of bodies that regulate standard languages.

Natural languages

Auxiliary languages

Interlingua

The auxiliary language Interlingua has no regulating body, as its vocabulary, grammar, and orthography are viewed as a product of ongoing social forces. In theory, Interlingua therefore evolves independent from any human regulator. Interlingua's vocabulary is verified and recorded by dynamically applying certain general principles to an existing set of natural languages and their etymologies.

Constructed languages

With the exception of Interlingua, all other auxiliary languages have been "constructed" by a person or small group. Constructed languages are by definition their inventors' regulations, so language planning, as known in natural languages, does not exist independent of the language itself.
