About Qualian Quali is an artistic language I have planned to use in a fictional world. It's phonology is to some extent inspired by Spanish. Here comes three quick facts:

  • Quali is a SOV languge, but thanks to its case system the word order is flexible.
  • Quali has a case system. Nouns get different suffixes for accusative, genitive, vocative, locative and instrumental case.
  • Quali verbs agree with the subject. They're conjugated for 1st, 2nd, 3rd Spiritual and 3rd Non-Spiritual person. Quali verbs are not obligated to show tense.
