Language type A priori
Species Human/humanoid
About Hibathu Its typology is currently under heavy revision, but the phonology and orthography are set in stone, as are the root words currently listed.

Hipaathu features loose word order (tending towards SOV), numerous applicatives, productive noun incorporation, underspecified voicing on consonants, and vowel pronunciation that is heavily affected by stress.

It is spoken by people in the same fictional world as Mezhat, in one of the more mountainous areas. In Mezhat, its name is Hysät.
