About Dakinian DONT TRUST THE SPECIES I JUST FORGOT TO SAVE

It's an a posteriori conlang spoken in Ocinia, Kashania, and as a minority in Akaria, and Uwi
The language is spoken by the Arazeni Race (informally known as arze) who are a snake-like race with long noses, an exoskeleton, big teeth and small lips, in this culture it is rude to show your lips, so they use their hands, the conlang Dakinian is part of the Classical West Sanilian branch of the sanilian protolang, they all speak a unified lingua franca despite being a tribal race, the only difference between the tribes are dialects
The writing system is a WIP but it will be finished soon
