Stradan (stradans linguå) is a constructed international auxiliary language spoken in the micronational area of Strada in Jakarta, Indonesia. It is Germanic-based. It may have similarities with the North Germanic languages. It contains loan-words from different Southeast Asian languages such as Indonesian, Javanese, Sundanese, Posonese and many more. It was created in 2018 as a symbol of the group of micronations located in Strada. The project was started by Aaron Penyami in mid 2018. The project was restarted in late 2018 and early 2019.
Stradan was a constructed language created in 2018 as a part of the culture of micronations located in the micronational area of Strada. The original form, Proto-Stradan, was described as "Indonesian as if it was Dutch". It did not have any official grammatic rules and the phonological inventory was based on Dutch. Stradan became an official language with the help of the Pejatenian government. However, a lot of words had been lost, and it never got expanded. Stradan was usually used in multilingual signs only. Some poems were written in Stradan. It was still not used seriously. In late 2018, Penyami got a sudden interest for linguistics, due to his obsession with the Japanese culture and the Japanese language. The project was restarted. It evolved from sounding Dutch-like to sounding Nordic-like.
In early 2019, Stradan had a reform. It had a problem its phonological inventory was confusing for Indonesians. It had to be restarted. Its grammar became a little complex, so it had to be reformed.
