About Hadraic Hadraic is a Semitic language spoken by Hadhrami people mostly living in Yemen's Shabwah Governorate. It is spoken by about 500,000 people.

I was looking into Semitic languages and decided to make one for myself. Hadraic (mostly) is derived from Proto-Semitic. Since it's currently a work in progress, features will be added to this section and this section will be updated.

Some interesting things about Hadraic:
- No tense, instead mood is used to mark time (kind of).
- Hadraic pulls a Hebrew (and actually many other Semitic languages) by zzzzzzing /ð/.
- Two cases, nominative and oblique, as well as singular, dual, and plural numbers, which have different forms depending on case.
- Five different verb templates (JUSJussive (mood)
command or exhort
, STAVStative aspect (aspect)
ongoing but not changing
, PFVPerfective (aspect)
completed action
, IPFVImperfective (aspect)
'interrupted or incomplete'
, and INFInfinitive (TAM)
non-tensed verb
), to which the subject, object, conjunctions, and mood and other stuff (DESDesiderative (mood)
wishes, desires, wants
, SBJVSubjunctive mood (mood)
desired or possible events
, SUGGSuggestive mood (mood)
suggestion, 'should', 'ought'
, VOLTVolitive (mood)
to wish for something
, CAUSCausative (valency/mood)
cause an action to occur, force another argument to act
, PASSPassive voice (valency)
be verb-ed
, RECPReciprocal (valency)
arguments act on each other
, and PCPParticiple
adjectival form of a verb
) can be affixed.
- Strong vs. weak verbs, and two different conjugation classes for verbs.
- Adjectives distinguished between static (non-changing) adjectives, like colors, shapes, and size, and non-static adjectives, like emotion.
- Stupid spirantization and consonant cluster simplification that obscures roots. Fun!
