About Ajatsian Ajatsian is spoken by Tairqen, a race of people living on the planet Ekseta (officially Nin IV), in the Ninurta system. While it is (supposed to be) an alien language, it is fairly pronounceable for humans (how convenient!). Ajatsian has a consonant harmony system and tense markers on subjects. It features clicks (ǀ and ǁ) and an ingressive labiodental fricative (↓f). I have also created a conscript for it, which I hope to be able to upload here some day, but the fact that it is vertical makes it more difficult to turn it into a font.

This is Common Ajatsian, which is used as a lingua franca (a bit like English on Earth). There are many variants and dialects, which I am hoping to create one day.
