About Egeriac  Egeriac is a North Alcian language, which is a subbranch of Alcian languages, and Alcian languages are descended from  Proto-Alcian.

The basic word order of Egeriac is SOV, but it shows a lot of syntactic characteristics stereotypically associated with VO languages like the use of prepositions and postnominal relative clauses. A theory of this is that the ancestral language of Egeriac had an VO word order, but speakers of the predecessors of Egeriac had intensive contacts with communities speaking SOV languages like Adzamic and Baredan languages, which ended up causing the shift of word order to SOV.
