One other alternative is the verb {ren} "design". It implies designing
something instead of inventing it. My point is that "a language" is not
something you need to invent. There are many languages, so there's no
need to invent the concept of "language".

Compare it to cars, houses or other things that are "designed {ren}".
The {Duj 'oghwI'} is the person who invented the car, not the one who
designed Ford's latest model.

But that's not a final thing, only a suggestion. I'll leave it open for
