About Enenran Austronesian-based language with a little bit of Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic, spoken in my conworld by enenras who lived at the north of Čeoaeaiea before Čeoaeaiea even existed, but got nearly wiped out of existence because humans were too afraid of them, and since then they live in a tropical paradise on the south of Sharkania and islands nearby, which they really didn't mind and did a really good job defending thejr islands against humans some centuries later. Their culture is like a mix of cultures of peoples of Japan, Okinawa, Yonaguni and Indonesia(they've even got a storytelling art similar to the Japanese rakugo and a shadow theatre similar to the Indonesian wayang kulit), and a large part of their culture consists of all that stuff with clans and martial arts.

The Enenran language is normally divided into the two dialect groups: Benua(continental) and Mokupuni(insular). Both Benua and Mokupuni have VSO word order, adjective following the noun, possessive and object personal suffixes, no grammatical tenses, and reduplication for forming the plural

Both use an abugida and write from right to left. That's how their writing system looks like:
