About Rashintu Rashintu (raśiinṭu raśiinṭu), also known as Zaymayan or Zmaimoyani is a Northern Desanian language spoken by a small ethnic minority in western Nesyania. Its closest relative is Kasewayan, however it is not mutually intelligible with any other Desanian language.

(I don't know what I'm doing with my life deriving another conlang from Old Desani)

Anyway, the ✨main features✨
  • agglutinative/fusional, nom-acc, head-final (like other desanlangs)
  • two noun classes (human vs. non-human) + nine nominal and eight pronominal cases
  • all long vowels are marked with double letters so there's lots of aaaa stuff around (ibaarśaaḍe, raḍuusasiip, təbaarḍiirjhi)
  • if this language existed in real life, the speakers of related languages probably would look at its aesths with awe and horror (and I thought Keranian was cursed)
