About Northern Tazuro
✨dictionary remake in progress✨


  • mildly fusional, active-stative (more specifically fluid-S), head-initial (strictly VSO)
  • verb tenses and moods are marked by particles
  • a simple but annoying derivation system that makes me scream into the void every time I try to add more words
  • supposed to have a “tropical” aesthetics, very loosely inspired by natlangs like Malay and Swahili
  •  Southern Tazuro is better (but even more underdeveloped and abandoned)
