About Naduta Naduta (韓​ 9QK話舌e​ Nadutata yan anuparna) was the language of the Naduta Empire, and the lingua franca of the entire region. It is a somewhat agglutinative and strongly head final language written in a complex logosyllabic script.

I've decided to include Naduta's pitch accent explicitly in the dictionary entries. This will require editing all the words as well as revamping the grammar tables. There will be some oddities in the grammar tables until I have completed this.
