About Florian My favourite conlang yeah I know nobody cares cares. Spoken by floroids(humanoid plants), scientists, some druids, and, well, 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] Ego bad.

I am a duck.
