About Gow-Eszinian The name "Gow-Eszinian" is a joke based on one of my surnames, Góes, a surname of Portuguese origin (making it clear that I'm a brazilian, to avoid confusion).

The purpose for which this language is being created, and the fact that I am new to conlanging. Because I had already tried other times to build languages ​​for some stories that I'm still creating (worldbuilding). They were too ambitious for a beginner like me, so I left them on "stand-by" (I paused their production, if that's more understandable).

It is "simple", having most of its lexicon borrowed from Latin, Greek and English, but there are other languages ​​from which I have also borrowed words. Currently, I don't know much about Latin or Greek, however, I based myself on the etymology of several words to be able to use as a basis for the creation of the lexicon.

Its writing system is alphabetic, and is inspired by the Greek and Cyrillic (Russian) alphabets. It has some diacritics, essential to identify the correct pronunciation of some words (or to differentiate in cases of homograph words). The morphology follows an agglutinating structure (words come together to form others) but it is also somewhat isolating, as there are no conjugations or declensions (at this time).

Note: Sorry if the text is weird, as I'm only good at reading/listening in English, I'm a... "silly" at writing, I forget how to form complete sentences or sentences. So I'm using a translator.
And speaking English. I'm a little less "silly", but I still have a little trouble thinking of what to say.

    Additional NotesAbout orthography, each letter has only one sound. Unless a diacritic indicates a change in sonority (hence, in pronunciation as well).

    Unfortunately, ConWorkShop is not saving the alphabetical order I have arranged for my language. Then the real order will be on the conscrip link with examples in a few words.
