About Proto Central-Centralian This is the hypothesized protolang of all of the central-nomadic languages. I say "hypothesized" because north nomadic notably takes enormous amounts of vocabulary, phonology, and grammar seemingly out of nowhere, so it may not be genetically related to the protolang (in-universe at least, and as of now, this conlang does not yet exist). As for a basic overview of the features, well, there's not much here. It's an early, analytic-isolating SOV head-final language with no gender system, no formal past OR future tense, and no real writing system besides various paintings found in the caves and rocky crags of the speakers' mountainous homelands. I say "lands" because they were not a very sedentary people, they moved around a lot, some more than others. Some settled in the valleys, others in the foothills and high peaks, and many moved far away from their home in search of greener pastures. Either way CNTI was destined to breed a widespread, dominant family of languages.
