About Ushnagos Ushnagos (literally meaning "our language") is spoken by around 120 million people in the tropical island nation of Pernagos.
It, along with English, is used as an offical language and lingua franca among the diverse ethnic groups in the nation.
Ushnagos is a language isolate with no relation to any language near it. Relatively unknown until 500 years ago, it mysteriously resurged as the language of government & religon and surplanted itself as the dominate language of the Pernagoese.

Sudanese kinship system: Ushnagos used the Sudanese kinship system, meaning that unique familial distinctions will be given different terms (e.g. maternal-grandfather vs paternal-grandfather are different terms).

Verbs: Verbs are agglutinative with the maximum structure of VERB-SUBJECT-MOOD-NEGATION (e.g. Khemditeme - meaning "I may not have (it)" is broken down as khem-di-te-me, or have-I-may-no).
