Species Human/humanoid
About Lowerton A personal language, created just for the fun of constructing languages.

Has a weird phonology, concentrated around fricatives and approximants.
It distinguishes the difference between normal, long* and aspirated vowels
(*Only a part of them is)
Open syllables prohibited* (if it ends with the unpronounced 'l' it is still considered closed)
(*There are exceptions - especially verbs)

Distinguishes classes as:
Nouns - Light/Heavy; Bright/Dark; Abstract (any imaginary concepts)
Adjectives - High/Low (Depends on whether they were derived from a noun or not)
Verbs - Weak/Normal/Strong

Its grammar is almost non-existent, but it still has:
Singular/plural nouns
A descriptive form of nouns (whenever they are with an adjective)
*Verbs getting affixes, depending on their class and the class of the subject (if it is a noun) (E.g. A strong verb will get an '-aq/-jaq' suffix whenever the subject of the sentence is a heavy noun)
(*not implemented just yet)

Grammatical features it lacks:
Tenses
Any other Subject-Verb agreement
Adjective agreement
And so much more...

Practically impossible to read, because of its orthography.
