About Quethan Quethan, (native name quítıon, pronounced [kʷiɾen]), is my first attempt to make a language spoken on Earth. Progress is likely to be very slow since it seems every time I actually do something, I will scrap it following day. DICTIONARY OUT OF DATE!
Well, anyway, here's a quick list of some features:
  • quite simple phonology
  • SOV
  • synthetic
  • tripartite
  • ummm
  • pronoun-less, I guess, kinda

<į> is actually dotless
I'm also working simultaneously with a nameless proto language and a sister language,  Aphenian .
Still a terrible flag maker!
