About Old Shyorian The oldest stage of Shyorian.

The Shyoric languages (ḻụri, dľeurhi) form their own branch of South Osveraali due to their extremely idiosyncratic sound changes especially in the consonant inventory, where numerous phonemes are found that are unknown in other Osveraali languages. Especially striking is the large inventory of lateral and velar affricates that result from palatalised and velarised consonants.

Old Shyorian is the oldest written language of Atsiq - its first attestations date to roughly 1000 AD - and was an important lingua franca in the southeast of the continent for centuries. Its writing system has gone through an evolution of its own, distinct from the Osveraal script used for most of its sister languages, and remains a symbol of pride for the Shyorian people to this day.
