About Old Uzili The old form of  Unknown [UZX] directly descended through its Uzilic branch from  Proto-Varkanic; as Uzil is the Urheimat of the Varkanic family, it can be considered very conservative, keeping most Proto-Varkanic grammatical aspects.

• Quinary number system [from  Proto-Varkanic]
• Simple affix-based grammar - mostly fusional/agglutinative [from  Proto-Varkanic]
• A large volume of intra-Varkanic compound verbs - lexicon is primarily internally derived
• Evolution from  Proto-Varkanic: new feature (two verb tenses: present and non-present)
• Verb structure and formula has also changed significantly
• Unmarked accusative (wow!)
• Subjunctive marked by reduplication (wow!!!)
• Mild derivational morphology - nouns can take entirely new meanings based on their nominal tense. Several words can be formed out of one root noun.
