About Churra Churra is spoken by the Chasrae, an alien race with similar but somewhat different vocal tract than our own. The language features a few sounds unpronounceable by humans, but these are replaced with nasals, which are unpronounceable by the Chasrae.

Churra has the unique property of determining its tense solely through the word order of its major arguments.
