About Nieren Mnéren /ᶮɲeɾə̃/ - lit. 'of the great people'

  • Nieren is an a priori conlang with sporadic inspirations from Turkish, Mandarin, and Arabic to an extent
  • Medium-sized phonology. Vowel length is lexical and nasalization of central vowels is not uncommon
  • SOV, strongly head-final, nominative-accusative alignment, mostly agglutinative with a handful of modal particles
  • There are 8 basic noun suffixes, including a widely used 'attributive' suffix and a 'collective' suffix
  • Nouns are not marked for definiteness
  • Aspect and voice are conveyed through prefixes and mood and tense are conveyed through verb suffixes
  • Adjectives may take one of three temporal forms (past, present, future), which are unrelated to the tense of the clause.
