Naslian

Language type A priori
Species Human/humanoid
About Naslian Naslian is a conlang project I started in order to take a break from proto-conlanging and my other projects and where I feel more confident developing it. It's not derived from anything but tries to be as naturalistic as possible without involving diachronics. Might try to remake it's proto-language in the future though.
Some random features:
-Medium sized inventory.
-Complex phonotactics (more or less).
-4 vowel system and 2 dipthongs.
-SOV main word order.
-Simple noun paradime.
-Simple tense system.
-Language abandoned-
