About Saayish Saayish is spoken by the Saay people of the likewise named kingdom. It has recently undergone, by decree of the Saayish Council (Saayis Cali, /sa:jis kali/), the Great Saayish Reform, in which all grammar was revised and extensively simplified. This is due to the fact that a big number of Saay people were uneducated, or barely, in the Saayish language, which the Council found unacceptable (this is definitely not due to the fact that the conlanger, in his opinion, exaggerated a little when making the language and can't be bothered to follow his own rules). Saayish has two official transcription methods: a native alphabet (derived from the ancient abugida) and the Latin alphabet (in more common usage).
