[edit] [view] Šurq (Shurq Geniese)The Danish of the Geniese dialects, spoken on the east. Has glottal stop, long vowels, /d͡ʒ/ and more words from Oromo and Arabic
[edit] [view] Ţoruft (Toruft Geniese)The eastern dialect, spoken near the river that divides Ŕepčilźemě and Amthi, and is one of the most linguistically diverse places in my conworld. Has the thrilling "r", but overall its phonology is less crazy than the phonology of the central dialect. The short and long vowel distinction has also returned to this dialect - probably due to the influence of Reptilian, Amthi and Entish
