About Sfini Sfini is a language spoken by a society of sphinx-like humans with wings and some lion traits. that live within vast desert oasises, accessible only by mirages that act as portals for the right people.

Meta-wise, Sfini is a langauge that I want to allow myself to not pay 100% attention to naturalism all the time and focus instead on experimenting and having fun with lexicon, phonoaestetics, and grammar :^)
