About Yatian iata (iata)

This conlang's purpose was to experiment with verblessness. It was later labelled "Divine Language" (whence the language code "DIV") as the sentence structures required to make this work made me think of some divinity. The lexicon is currently being reformed to make Yatian a usable, conversational language. The reform has been successful, and I will hopefully be expanding the dictionary now.
The way this language works is that it basically enounces the state of things, or indicates that things are transiting into or from that state. The five nominal cases are also vague, as they are not directly equivalent to one human nominal case, but a general idea. I am currently working on an article to go through this language in a detailed manner.

A few quick facts:
-no verbs
-6 consonants
-6 vowels
-4 sentence types
-2 sentence connectors
-Free word order
-7 cases
-No inflection; uses free particles
-"reverse abugida" (base = vowel; consonants have independent and appended forms, there is a generally unused zero-consonant mark, but no inherent consonant)


I won't do grammar tables for this conlang, simply because everything is expressed via particles, as I said before. My main project with this language will be the article, and some translations.
