About Xynder
UNDERGOING LEXICAL & DIACHRONIC RECONSTRUCTION

IPA Help Page

This is my main conlang which is usually acknowledged for its usage of hoj(dzan(er)). It is a Xyndic language and is related to  Heufdalian and  Exgot. The language is, on the most part, SVO. Xynder has six cases: nominative, dative, genitive, vocative, accusative and lative. Its nouns are also divided into three genders: masculine, feminine and neuter. The most notable part of its verb system is most likely its usage of the subjunctive mood and the passive voice conjugations. The language can also use the  Laefêvëši script! However, I'd say the phonology and phonotactics are the features that stand out the most and are usually regarded as a fairly difficult one, with fifty phonemic consonants and thirty-one phonemic vowels.

And here are some sample videosHere's the entire playlist if you want it:
