[view] Zalume (Zalomese)Zalomese or Zalomi, natively Zalume [zəluˈme] is a southern variety of Nesyanian and the official language of Zaloma.

Main differences:
• less loanwords of Desanian origin
• no evidentiality
• some changes in the phonology (no /t͡s d͡z/, a bit more intense vowel deletion/reduction)
• probably a few other minor features not worth being mentioned here
