About Shele Basically, an orgy of Bantu languages that sounds like if Shona and Polish had a baby. My first conlang which is not from my conworld. I'm making this one just for fun and probably gonna abandon it someday.
Some features:
- Highly agluttinative
- Loves prefixes and interfixes
- Reflexive prefixes and object prefixes included
- The word order is rather free, but mainly SVO
- Adjectives, possessive pronouns and numerals come after the noun
- 7 noun classes for: humans/animals, dead humans and animals, paranormal beings, plants/mushrooms/microorganisms, inanimate objects, non-physical/abstract things/ideas, and the verbal stuff(including languages)
- Palatalisation and labialisation
