About Hituronish
Hituronish 3.0

The reboot of its two previous versions, this time derived from a proto-conlang (more or less) and with almost no vocabulary stolen from natlangs. Almost.

Introduction and some features

Hituronish is spoken in my medieval-like fantasy conworld by a few millions people living in the kingdom of Hituron. I use it mainly to name places (towns, rivers, etc.) in my story I write. I guess you could also call it Ainish, taking into account the autonym.

Here are some features:
- four different word orders:
    - VSO – when subject is a pronoun
    - SVO – when a noun or proper noun is a subject
    - SOV – questions (with changed intonation)
    - VOS – happens in main clause when subordinate clause precedes the main one

- two tenses: non-past and past
- four cases: nominative, accusative, dative, genitive
- three genders: masculine, feminine, neuter

Pronunciation is probably slightly ood since I fucked up my phomo rules; dictionary may be slightly ood as well bcs i dont update it anymore here on cws.
