About Proto-Akali-Emisian The ancestral proto-language of all the Akali-Emisian languages, including Akalix (of the Akali Empire), Pasati (of the Pasan tribes in the northern forests), and Emisian (of the Emisi, the great northern warriors). It is named after the most historically important languages in each of its branches, Akalix and Emisi. It is polysynthetic, and features a particularly large consonant inventory.

It had 56 consonant phonemes, split into 28 glottalized sounds and 28 non-glottalized sounds (note that the phonetic realizations of *h and *hʼ are unclear).
