About Asakan (I got tired of purging the dictionary again and again so I also place this oerere)
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bXg8R9qRLKdLOUJvsLGv0-HBTova-I0p/

The final version of Monyo's official language~! I'd like to say it keeps its simplicity, however recent events have made it a tad… intimidating

Features:
Agglutinative-ish morphology: Some productive affixes, some extinct ones, some confusing ones that have certain uses, and the like~
Analytic grammar: Separate markers are used for case/definiteness, tense/aspect/voice, mood/evidentiality, adpositions, comparison, numbers… so yeah, lots and lots of auxiliaries to remember~!
Plurals: Yeah, prepare for a lot of irregulars…
Small alphabet: I guess this thing didn't change; alphabet is still small and easy to write/learn/pronounce (what is labial), though in many dialects exists a merger of f (f) and s (s) . Also, across dialects the vowels e i u (e, i, u) can range from /ɯ~i~e/, in any order and sometimes even at the same time; also o (o) is sometimes centralised to a schwa- yeah I'd just stick to the Standard dialect… (oh wait there are two standard dialects reeeeeee-
