About Kavish Kavish is a priori language with SVO word order because im boring as hell, it is kinda flexible tho, masculine and feminine genders, and inspiration from Polish and Latvian.

It does have some neat features though, such as its unusual sound clusters (like /t͡ɕʃ/ or /ɕt͡ʃ/, not as strange as they are hard to pronounce), sounds that don't exist in Slavic or Baltic languages (like /θ/ or /ð/), and nasal vowels (ą for /ã/, ę for /ɛ̃/, and so on).

Other features include:
-A grammar system that isn't nearly as complex as Polish, thank god
-Plenty of cases for your Case Needs™
-Way too many swear words mama sheep where is my swear award please i need it
-Why the hell is ų so hard to pronounce
-An overly-fancy name for a stupid star
-Literally no way to tell what grammatical gender a noun is assuming there isn't an adjective in front of it
-Fancy pluralactionality
-"God, shit in my mouth."
-Too many forms for 'not'
-Basterik :))))))
-Where's the stress on this word? Who knows!
-Everybody gangsta till Kavish walks in with the uncomplicated glosses
-Totally didn't have a (previously) messed-up phoneme nooooo (it's fixed now ;) )

Sļąwa iw Kawęśeteko!
(Glory to Kavistet!)
