About Proto-Retgia-Dohaverang A fantastic protolang, that I have put on hold indefinitely.
In case you were wondering, the flag was supposed to be three strands combined into a circle of rope, with some kind of stripe pattern in the background.

Plural word in pre noun, it is different word when pluraling a noun with singular class
black pain == extreme pain


Plurality: Plurality is marked with a separate word that means "many", it takes different forms depending on a few types of noun classes
Sentence order: Subject-Object-Verb, verb-subject-object
definiteness:
pronouns: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and fourth
inclusivity
Imperative mood: Has a morphologically dedicated second person imperative that does not distinguish between singular and plural. Intensifier is used elsewhere
Negation: negative word before verbs followed by negative suffix as double marking
Nominal and locational predication: The language encodes the copula verb in "That man is a student" (nominal) and "That man is by the ocean" (locational) differently.
