Species Human/humanoid
About Florian My favourite conlang yeah I know nobody cares. Spoken by the busakan(a species of humanoid plants, i.e. floroids), scientists, some druids, and me 👋 It's an analytical SVO language with 5 tenses(past, future in the past, present, future, future perfect) and no cases at all, and that's why it's grammar seems pretty straitforward before you find out there's 4 noun declensions and 5 verb conjugations with a ton of exceptions and exceptions from exceptions, including irregular verbs which are almost as many as in English.

It gets even funnier with orthography: for example, in Central Florian, the main dialect, known for its bizarre vowels, the y might represent four different sounds: [i], [j], [y], or suddenly [ẽ]. And as for phonology, it may be easy for you if you speak Armenian.

It uses the Albanian, Armenian and Greek vocabulary, but has some false cognates and a completely different way of thinking.

The script:
Sample of Florian[view] Patmut'yun petk' fundit, os akomi ri lulet pior tharёjё. Por lule se oneirous gjithmonё li kai aroma anthizeis.

The story must end, and even fresh flowers will wither. But the flower within one's dreams will always remain in full and fragrant bloom.
