About Chlouvānem Chlouvānem (natively chlǣvānumi dhāḍa) is the most spoken language on the planet Calémere (Liloejāṃrya), a classical and liturgical language with more than two millennia of written history used diglossically and as lingua franca in the territories ruled by the Chlouvānem Inquisition.

Its most peculiar features are:
~ Austronesian alignment with seven voices (patient, agent, anti-/benefactive, locative, dative, and instrumental triggers);
~ a fusional inflectional system in nouns and verbs;
~ an additional, voice-like inflectional category in verbs, but independent from actual voices, where verbs can have an "exterior" and "interior" conjugation, the latter often having intransitive, stative, middle, reflexive, reciprocal, or non-volitive meanings;
~ place and movement are expressed with a large number of prefixes, productively used with verbs of position and motion, and with demonstratives;
~ a duodecimal numeral system.

I am slowly adding stuff about Chlouvānem here on CWS; in the meantime, the language already has a fair amount of documentation on Linguifex.
