It is my first conlang so I am learning as I go along
The language is SOV (subject object verb)
example: The man is throwing ash - gistaeta itsulka sruupsa - gistaeta itsulka sruupsa - man sg ash pl throw pre
However SVO word order, while rarer, is still accepted as grammaticaly correct.
Kozaria is a region of west Qalzon however does not speak the language their. It used to be a language of trade with the elves in Visthem but is in decline after the siege of Smejjak (Smíyiik) and a large portion of the Kozarians land was lost.
