About Mayessa

Hi and welcome to the Mayessan page !
The language may look cool but it's actually extremely shitty rip. :^)

Updates


- early June: conscript changes.

Summary


My main conlang, 90% artlang, 10% a priori. Agglutinative and phonologically unaesthetic with a partly syllabary alphabet. Unique prosody and phonemes.

In one dimension, it is known as a minority language of Sahar in  Unknown country [MJR] and  Chalyl. In another, it's one of the two official languages of Pozdow, planet Monfast.

Facts


- SVO :
- agglutinating ;
- head-first ;
- verb-framed ;
- nominative/accusative alignment but no marked accusative ;
- few tenses ;
- lots of regular declensions (but no accusative) ;
- possession through genitive or affixes ;
- determiners are affixes ;
- possible passive voice included in conjugations ;
- possible negative conjugations ;
- complex prosody ;
- very allophonic ;
- very palatal : /ɲ c ɟ ç ç̠ ʝ̠ ʎ j/ ;
- lots of glides : /ʋ j ʍ w ɰ ɥ ð̞/.
