About Mellan Reformed again, idk when this streak of changes will end but let's make Hanagant great again

Mellan (formerly Lilian, hence LIN) is a Kitrian language spoken in the island of Adimoth, which is directly north of Mina. Grammatically close brothers to Lithian, but the vocabulary is less of an intelligible thing to the Lithians particularly because of the substantial influence from the already-native Mothic (or Adimothian) languages.
