About Shimmerian An unofficial conlang I'm making for the Shimmer species from Inanimate Insanity.

Features:

SVO word order, because I am a boring native speaker of English.

Sounds that are easy for English speakers to pronounce, same reason as the above.

No difference between singular and plural pronouns, along with many animate nouns having only plural. This is to highlight that Shimmers are a collective species.
