About Otvei Otvei is a personal language (not spoken by a conpeople). I've been wanting to do something with this lang for a while, but I don't have much yet. I'm not going to worry too much about naturalism, especially with regularity. It's going to be a pretty straightforward language. Otvei has a conscript, which is alpha-syllabic.
