About Old Tirina I'll be honest. I only added this one to CWS because I didn't have a good phonology table, and the one here is really convenient to use.

Old Tirina is theoretically the ancestor of (Modern) Tirina, but in truth it's nothing more than a big jumble of vocabulary from which to draw Modern Tirina words. Azen also borrowed heavily from it. So don't expect a whole lot. Nobody's going to be writing epics in Old Tirina.

It's mostly a priori but when I'm bored and/or stuck I nick from a weird combination of Sumerian, Akkadian, and Proto-Kartvelian. Why? Because I have good dictionaries for those. It is highly unlikely any natlang would have such origins, so it's a good thing Old Tirina isn't a natlang.

I have exactly zero plans to ever put any OT vocabulary here, so don't hold your breath.
