About Ehlimese Ehlimese (qeYehlimê usatukê, [qejeɬimɛ usatukɛ]) was a classical language with ancient literary tradition. It served as the common language in the area of Ehlim until the arrival of the peoples of Ledankis.

It has many new features I did not tried before.
  • It has three grammatical genders; masculine, feminine and neuter.
  • Five different strategies to mark plural nouns.
  • Quite free word order.
  • Polypersonal agreement
  • Head-marking
  • Zero copula
  • Nonverbial person agreement (everything can behave as a verb)
  • 5+ patterns of prefixing nouns

  • 10 noun cases
  • Sample of Ehlimese[view] Eixilimt ehhako nimma'ê xurrêzin. Eiapo yitim cinan cepo ehhako, eihhoña

    I’ve been like a mother to that girl. I’ve locked her in her room, told her she was fat, and once I even left her in a store!
