About Pozdewk
THE GLORIOUSLY REBOOTED POZDEWK THAT WAS FORGOTTEN AGAIN AFTERWARDS.
And its slightly out of date shitty audio samples.


Updates
.

- 18/06 : determiner "ÿo" changed to "ÿ".

Facts

- distinctive light and dark Ls (/l ɫ/);
- distinctive breathy voice;
- vocalic disharmony;
- lots of syllabic consonants;
- passive tenses formed by verbal compounds;
- few declensions, no accusative (except in personal pronouns).

A language spoken in the Pozdowian Republic, in my conworld named Monfast. Both grammar and SVO basis are from French, but their elaboration is not supposed to look like anything that exists on Earth. It is an agglutinating language with only four declensions (except for pronouns that have five cases).

The prononciation is not based on anything known either, although almost all phonemes are very common.

It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness, that is life.
