Barrur was spoken by the Amaanamsha people in the northern regions of the Edine continent. The Amaanamsha was one of the first civilizations to discover agriculture. They were also great sailors and merchants. They established many colonies all around the coasts of the Jit-sea. After the great flood the civilisation fell apart, the people needed to move into the desert.

Barrur is maybe my most complicated language, with complex phonological rules and stress system. The basic word order is VSO, but in imperative sentences the verb goes to the end of the sentence. Barrur uses head-marking in many situations. For nouns there are no dedicated singular/plural distinctions. Barrur has an animacy based split-ergative allignment. In the third person there are distinct words for animate, inanimate, obviate and proximal pronouns. Barrur uses a logographic writing system, where the signs also carry phonemic information.
