Language type A priori
Place & SpeakersPetpena is spoken by a population of around 370,000 .
Species Human/humanoid
About Petpena Petpena is what people spoke in  Vezaria before 1926, when it was replaced by  Vezarish. Petpena is still spoken by a large number of people, over one-third of the population to be exact, who wished to keep their native language alive.

- Similar word order rules as Vezarish
- Determiners are affixes now
- Actually more than one noun case, a rarity among my langs
- There used to be a conscript but I deleted it because sucked
- Name of language literally means "we speak"

I'm currently working on a document outlining all there is to Petpena grammar so it's not as confusing.
Former name of lang was Pahkoje before dictionary overhaul.
