About Desterian I was dipping my toes into the water and trying out making a language after being obsessed with conlangs for a while. I had absolutely no idea whether this would turn out good or bad, and the only way to find out was to keep going.

While my expectations were technically surpassed, I'm not entirely satisfied with it. As such, I decided to abandon this conlang once I started to work on another conlang. And that conlang would be  Ide.
Sample of Desterian[view] Sa gen, có sa genî? Démi gent sé puénse.

To be, or not to be? That is the question.
