About Saritani
— Grammar article (WIP): CLICK
— concultural stuff coming soon —

• no idea what the morphological typology of this thing is, probably fusional gently leaning towards polysynthetic
• no idea why it exists in first place
• each noun can have up to 64 different forms depending on the case, number and definiteness
• verbs conjugate for person, number and tense, and can take different mood/aspect prefixes resulting in stuff like ktmitusurinde
• at least adjectives, adverbs and everything else have no declension
• the consonant inventory is tame if you ignore lovely word-initial clusters such as previously mentioned /ktm/
• vowels like to jump around and mutate but it's pretty normal in the langfam
• basically Keranian but worse
Sample of Saritani[view] Peẋaruni ktmicivayer, va havuri diruṅer.
