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
SV/VS/SVO/VOS/freeeeeeeedom
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
