About heŚakþe One night, I got really pissed at English for being a colonial language. Months later, I still am. Being the kind of person I am, the obvious solution is to create a language disconnected from natural languages but relatively easy to learn so I can use it without any hesitation (and hopefully get my friends to learn it lol). The grammar is largely inspired by Arabic, Basque, and Greenlandic.

Sidenote: How was the code "FUQ" not already taken? I'm honestly amazed. If anyone wants it so they can make a jokelang with nothing but swear words just let me know and I'll find something else (although I checked and "FUK" is also available which I find simply unbelievable how is that not taken)

Two cases (Ergative and Absolutive)
No gender on nouns or pronouns
Adjectives agree with a noun's case, number, and definiteness
Natural gender marked on verbs (masculine, feminine, neuter, inanimate)
Verb agreement is the new black
Derivational morphology out the ass
Fun Latin writing system (I tell myself I'll make an original script but I probs won't tbh) I've got ð þ ŋ and æ though so that's cool
