About Amphibian Amphibian is a posteriori language spoken by the ichthyoids race in my conworld. It's official language of Amthi(Amþi) which is also known as country of amphibians. It's SVO language. Has 7 cases: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, instrumentative, prepositional and vocative. This language's grammar reminds grammar of Slavic languages spoken on Earth. Actually, there's a lot of slavshit

Also, Amphibian's vocabulary reminds such Earth's languages as Russian, Greek, Hindi and Indonesian. If you take a closer look, you may find English, Somali, Spanish, Romanian and some others. The closest Earth language to Amphibian is Ukrainian, and in my conworld it's Shadowese, Arachnese and Low Dragonese.

One of main phonological characteristics of Amphibian language is a lot of [þ], [ð] and [s] sounds. My idea was to make a language that sounds like sea.
