About Nesyanian My last attempt on creating an analytical language with almost no declension has failed miserably, so after a ragequit I'm making it into a blursed agglutinative abomination.

  • strongly head-initial – VSO, the possessee preceeds the possessor, and adjectives/adverbs (which are identical) come after the nouns and verbs they describe
  • noun declension system featuring 10 cases and 3 numbers plus a bunch of other affixed modifiers
  • each verb has 6 slots for various affixes marking tense, mood, intensity, subject and object, which can create pretty words such as ladeitėuzgamawayousu /ladeɪ̯təʊ̯zgamawajoʊ̯su/ “if only we could not add a lot of them”
  • ejective consonants
  • way too frequently used diphthongs – /aɪ̯ eɪ̯ əɪ̯ oɪ̯ uɪ̯ aʊ̯ eʊ̯ əʊ̯ oʊ̯/
  • more details can be found here

[view] Zalumeili (Zalomese)The Zalomese dialect (sut’ayah zalumeili, [sutʰajaʔ zalumeɪ̯li]) is a variety of Nesyanian influenced by the Varadic languages so heavily it starts to look like a creole. Simplified phonology, lots of loanwords of Varadic origin.
