About Anšyamī Anšyamī is one of the Rocosian languages, and shares a lot of its phonemes and grammar with its siblang  Anvalu. At this point, it's almost three years old, with a dictionary of 1600 words and counting (making it BY FAR my most successful attempt at a conlang yet). I think it's safe to say that I'm in love with this little bastard of a language.

Its initial influences were French, Japanese, Korean, and Belarusian, but the French-ness has died down since its creation. ^^

Some fun facts:
- The word for "arugula" predates the word for "bone."
- Early words created for the language were a lot more diacritic-heavy. A word like nētšitsu (be cold) is much older than one like vanede (freeze).
- Three verb classes: tangible, abstract, and passive! For more info on how they work, check out COMINGSOON!

[view] About Languages of RocosiaUsually influenced IRL by French, Asian languages, and Eastern European languages. Typically made up of CV(V)(N) syllables, and derive roots from the names of the gods.
[edit] [view] Vedyamī (Vedyan Speech)Dialect used by the Eastern forest kingdom of Vedya, and well known for marking nominative and accusative cases (outdated in other dialects). Other features include a shift from /ɕ t͡ɕ/ to /ʒ d͡ʒ/, a 'softening' of /h/ to /ɦ/, and time and location being placed directly before the verb. Most of these differences come from their extreme proximity to speakers of the spirit language, Anvalu.
