About Kalka'shar
  • Lazy, probably incredibly flawed artlang for a fictional race I created.
  • Primarily takes inspiration from English, Japanese, Swedish, Romanian and Collective Gallifreyan.
  • Primarily spoken -- the Kalka'shar are a very vocal race who use vocal tone more than actual words, so their written form is incredibly limited.
  • Written form is usually burned into wood and stone.
  • Generally written from right to left, and the Kalka'shar are usually left handed.
  • Tone and tense can be affixes or standalone, all preference-based.
  • Adverbs go after and adjectives come before the words they modify.
  • Tense always placed at the beginning of the sentence, tone goes at the exact point it is needed.
