About Legim Legim is a Dumaric language of the Oshic family, spoken by about 6 million people in Northern Oshos, mostly in Nordjaelm. It is also spoken on Sahar, also in Nordjaelm, on the continent of Alpa. It has become the lingua franca across the Legonic empire, as it is spoken in the capital of Kjonnia. It is closely related to Legjok and Thaljan. In everyday life, the extended Latin alphabet is used, but in matters of religion and state, the Legonic alphabet is favoured.

Here are some features:
  • 6 Nominal Cases: Nominative, Accusative, Genitive, Dative, Ablative and Locative
  • Generally SOV, but some verbs defy this structure
  • Gender is complicated, there are 3 genders, masculine,feminine and neuter, but a masculine/feminine adjective or verb is only used if the gender of the subject is known, otherwise all things are neuter./li>
  • There are 8 tenses
  • Verbs conjugate to tense, voice, number, aspect, and mood.
  • Adjectives agree with nouns number, case and gender
  • Adverbs can be formed from adjectives or nouns, and do not agree with nouns

[view] About AlpicThe languages spoken on Alpa, Sahar.
[view] Kjonnjar (Kjonnia)Mainly features nasalised vowels before consonant structures and at the start of words. It is much more rapid than Standard Nordjaelmish Legim, and is spoken in the central parts of the capital city of Kjonnia, mostly by youth. Far more loan words from neighboring human languages are used, due to regular interaction. This makes Kjonnjars sometimes misunderstood by provincial people and the older generations.
