Solish is the primary language spoken in the fictitious country of  Solico. It takes inspiration from various world languages, including Caucasian, Slavic, and Uralic languages. In fiction, it is a language isolate (although it is debated that this comprises a separate branch in the Uralic family), but does have some loan words and some light influence from other world languages.

It should be noted that the state of this language is volatile; that is, things are very likely to change drastically and at a rapid pace. This is an ongoing project and one that I'm passionate about, though that will require some trial and error and seeing what works for me. Expect frequent changes.
Sample of Solish[view] Huu, emada antosi et, Mikael. Hebdamezeda suv? Hai dolaran oga?
