About Northern Tazuro according to ancient legends, one day I will make this conlang functional 10/05/22: THE DICTIONARY WILL BE REDONE SOON

  • 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
  •  Southern Tazuro is better (but even more underdeveloped and abandoned lol)
  • supposed to have some generic “exotic” vibes
