Language type Proto-Conlang
Species Human/humanoid
About Proto-Feirie NOTICE: THIS LANGUAGE IS ON HOLD UNTIL I DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH IT. I AM CURRENTLY USING IT TO DERIVE THE NEW FEIRIE. UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE NO UPDATES WILL BE MADE AND ALL MY EFFORTS AND FOCUS ARE ON THE NEW FEIRIE.

Spoken by Fei, giants, and some Drakyn and humans, Malla is the most commonly spoken language of Mala, the Land of Floating Islands. Progress board

PHONOLOGY
- Standard five vowel system that have unstressed, rounded, and nasal allophones,
- Vowels assimilate into a strident (trilled) vowel after the epiglottal trill,
- Many consonants none of which are plosives or affricates, as Fei cannot pronounce these,
- Velars become palatals when before /e/ or /i/,
- Whistles and ejectives.

GRAMMAR
- Verbs mark aspect and mood, but not tense, and have pluractionality,
- Nouns don't decline, but change to a pre-verbal form when before the verb phrase,
- Nouns are either Feminine or Masculine,
- Sentient and Non-sentient noun classes,
- Generally OVS word order, but compounds use OSV/VOS,
- No prepositions, all such information conveyed with verbs,
- No pronouns, but determiners that are clitics, which have pronoun-like uses, and agree with noun gender
- Only uses transitive verbs for the verb phrase,
- No adjectives, but rather, stative verbs that conjugate identical to transitive verbs,
- Physical and Temporal adverb and stative classes,
- Adverbs are used liberally.

LEXICON
- Nouns, verbs (transitive and stative) and adverbs all come from roots with an inherent meaning, that are modified to the word class. See the article on derivation for more information,
- Many compounds.
