About Proto-Amian Proto-Amian is the predecessor language to the later families of the Amian language family. The first Ancient Amian tribes lived near a landbridge at the center of the continent and then, sensing only two possible directions to travel, sent groups of settlers to the farther out lands where they established their own ways of living and culture. Arguably, scholars debate the existence of a second proto-culture, the Aemora, who existed in the western continent.

What makes this language unique is its hybrid of a grammatical system. It turns most prepositions into affixes as well as conjunctions. These affixes can be stacked based on the order of NOM-PREP.
