About Classical-Ejai

[y:gy duk bikrɛ̃t]
Welcome!

Let me introduce the  Classical-Ejai language, or just Ejai.

Ejai is a daughter language of  Ancient-Mawic, so they share many features. Both of them have fluid-S allignment, vowel harmony, dual numbers, ect, but ejai has lost it's evidential distinctions, and evolved it into a future tense.
mẽt - get => mẽtt - got => zirm mẽtaf - will get

Ejai has only 7 noun cases, and the accusative became unmarked.

Some AWM suffixes fused together, and the grammar became more synthetic (?).
mẽtĩg => mẽt - get /-ĩg - suffix(PREPresent.PFVPerfective (aspect)
completed action
.OPTOptative (mood)
'wish, hope'
)

Ejai uses a lot of infixes, especially, when words end with a consonant cluster.
Lekk - brush (ACCAccusative (case)
TRANS direct object; patient
/ ABSAbsolutive (case)
TRANS object, INTR argument
) = > Lekük - brush (NOMNominative (case)
TRANS subject, INTR argument
)

Classical-Ejai uses two different scripts. The ruling class uses the Ancient-Mawic logography, while the lower class people use the Ejai script.
