Ancient-Mawic or "The Holy Speech" was used by a group of nomadic Mawo-Calaic people, who settled down in the valley of river Maw. The language changed a lot since the original proto-language. It has been influenced by the native inhabitats of the Maw valley. It was the language of science, religion, and politics for many thousand years.

The most important grammatical features:
  • Alienable/Inalienable posession
  • Evidentiality
  • Fluid-S allignment
  • 9 noun cases
  • Singular, dual, plural numbers
  • Agglutination
  • Number and case adjective agreement
  • SOV word order
  • Front-Back vowel harmony
  • No genders/animacy
  • Logography based mixed writing system


  • Soon I'll try to come up with a full grammar documentation.
