About Craic

This language is spoken by avians in the country of Crast. It has a complicated conjugation system, has many consonant clusters and has no rounded vowels. Humans learnt this language to communicate with the Crays, while other minorities in Crast do so to improve their privilege and for more opportunities

-fusional grammar
-evidentiality shown, witness and nonwitness
-3 numbers - singular, paucal and plural
-only 4 grammatical cases
-animate/inanimate distinction
-no definiteness
-many prepositions
-complicated phonology, notable for its high use of sibilants and many consonant clusters(as stated before)
-SVO/VSO word order, usually SVO
-frequent pronoun dropping
-alienability shown in adverbs
-mood focused language
-adjective agrees on noun cases
-nominative-accusative alignment
-postposition for inalienable nouns
-strange intonation pattern, but doesn't change the meaning, it's only to make their speech sound better. The Crays like singy songy speech.(There are exceptions on some words that are pitched differently due to difference in meaning, as a pitch accent, most notably in verb conjugations)
-in present tense, a modal verb will be added for intransitive verbs and inalienable nouns, but if a sentence already has a modal, neither of the modals will be added. Inalienable noun modals come before intransitive verb modals.

[view] Eker (Eker Craic)It is spoken mostly around the capital of Crast, Vista. It has no inflection at all and has a very fixed Subject-Verb(and maybe more verbs)-Object-Indirect Object-Modal order. Its plural form is formed by adding the word "wi". It's phonology is so much simpler and sounds very different to standard Craic, it uses some old words that are outdated in the modern language. All Eker speakers are fluent in standard Craic as well, as standard Craic is used in pretty much everywhere but the capital.
