greetings and welcome to the summary of Modehitchu!

Modehitchu is a dialect continuum or group of languages spoken by the Mode people. It's one of two branches of the small Moderan language family; the other being the distantly related  Odera which it draws significant influence from.
Modehitchu does not have a written language of its own, and Mode scribes instead write in Odera in an earlier abugida form of the hegima script.
Although Modehitchu is primarily SVO, Odera's VSO gets increasingly used by the societé.
Its sibilant PoA harmony, array of locative cases and absence of labial phones in most lects can also be mentioned.

Modehitchu has given me enough PhoMo work for the rest of my life, now please ad'b this trash mound of a language.

Syllable StructureThe sonority hierarchy is fake. Onsetless syllables get rekt. CCCCCVCCCC represent.
Other/e/ is slightly open-mid, /o/ close to [ʊ], and /a/ is central-back. A more precise transcription of these would be [ɛ̝ o̝ ɑ̈]. Therefore, ɑ and a can both be used to transcribe the open vowel, and the latter is most common.

There is a productive sibilant harmony where sibilant consonants /s ts ʃ tʃ/ will assimilate all previous sibilants in the word to either /s ts/ or /ʃ tʃ/ depending on their PoA.
This also affects prefixes:
/hksnaːs/ (friend.NOM) -> /sksnaːs/ (friend.GEN)
/hkietʃi/ (hoe.NOM) -> /ʃkietʃi/ (hoe.GEN)

All vowels can appear short and long. Long vowels /aː eː iː oː/ and diphthongs /ie̯ ea̯ oa̯/ are approximately twice as long as short vowels. Vowel quality is not affected by length.
