About Chii Chii is spoken on the Isle of Chii in the north of Ullainia. It is currently one of 4 major languages on the Island along with Bramn, Budic, and Yeo. A map of the region is available at: https://conworkshop.com/gallery_view.php?g=7d4990e509ce1ccc2ae7488c56427e20
Proto-Chiig is the assumed ancestor to Chii, Yeo, Budic, and Bramn, though linguists consider them separate languages despite being in close proximity since the early Tribal Era.
Chii is a hybrid language that makes use of several particles, affixes, and classifiers to signify and express concepts. Chii has a VSO word order and complex syllable structure with phonemic tone.

Syllable StructureSyllable Structure is complex (CVC) with stipulations on what consonants can occur and where. For example, a word can begin with any consonant, but if the ending consonant is not in the same articulatory class (fricative, approximant, etc.) then it cannot occur and a nasal or approximant must fill in.
Stress informationStress occurs on the vowel of each syllable. There can be instances where a single word has double stress.
