Language type Artistic Language (Artlang)
Species Human/humanoid
About Ayakadiya Artlang for a story/world setting I've been working on for about two years. Spoken by the majority of the world's population of aya, the species originating the language, but due to division of many countries and slightly more isolated from the original linguistically-homogenous population, dialect fragmentation and continuum are dramatically observed. The Ayakadiya entry deals only with the ancient and more formal speech, which is also the origin/proto-language of the Ayadi language family. Nevertheless Ayakadiya is still spoken by many older aya and is still used to name children even in many of the daughter languages.

The language is highly agglutinative, with extensive verbal morphology and a binary gender system based in animacy. If you take a loose view of what makes a language polysynthetic, then Ayakadiya is capable of sliding into that spectrum on occasion. The writing system is logographic, and written horizontally right to left.
