About Old Desani

ALL HAIL THE WATER LANG

Historical view

The oldest attested language of Desanian family, Old Desani was the precursor of several modern languages and dialects. Its speakers arrived on the territories of modern Nesyania and Kesehaya from the south, that's why they called themselves and their language Desanehi - literally just "southern".
Until the dawn of monotheistic Shenramic faith and further cultural splits, Desanians cultivated their traditions and animistic beliefs, united by one language.

Real life technical side

• technically it's not a proto-conlang, but it'll be used as a kind of foundation for next conlangs
• the ancestor of glorious  Standard Keranian
• single words still sound mostly like African langs and Japanese mixed together and it wasn't intended
koko written in Desanehi conscript is koko and it wasn't intended either
• never will be fully functional in real world as its imaginary speakers live in an ancient society and their language lacks words for modern concepts
