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:

Language family relationships
[edit] [view] Veri fyt (Northern Florian)Spoken by the floroids of the northern temperate and polar zones. Closer to Albanian, especially when it comes to palatalisation and vowel reduction
[edit] [view] Jug fyt (Southern Florian)The dialect with the most archaic pronunciation. Particularly, it doesn't have the /v/ and dental fricatives, but has the /w/ and diphthongs. Spoken at the southern temperate zone in Cyclopia and Čeoeiaea
[edit] [view] Thalassa fyd (Thalassic Florian)Some phonological changes, the most notable of which is the switching of voiced and unvoiced plosives
