About Sloy The Sloy language, or Slojasentua as it is most commonly called, is a modern post-classical agglutinative language that stems from a dialect of its classical predecessor. Its phonology varies more than its sister languages, and the Sloy language itself contains two dialectal variants, all of which are mutually intelligible with one another. It is spoken by approximately 10,000,000 speakers on the Jetovej peninsula to the east of the Hatësejensovo mountain range. This area comprises of the countries Slojavni to the extreme east on the coastline, Tithkeim on the southwestern coastline of the same peninsula, and finally in Sloja proper, which shares its Northern coast with a non-Hakkanic speaking country. All these three countries formed the Eastern Hakkan-Sloy Empire after it disbanded from the High Hatxanic, or Hakkanic, empire.

Inspiration
Sloy is a daughter language of Hakkan, or Hatxan as it was originally spelled, and gives rise to a nearly 90% lexical similarity in its lexical inventory. Sloy phonology is based primarily off of Finnish and the modern Scandinavian languages, such as Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, and even Icelandic. However, morphosyntactically speaking, it is similar to Finnish and to some extent Turkish. Sloy is a stress-timed language meaning that some vowels can be elided whether they exist semantically at the end of a morpheme in an agglutinized compound word, or whether they existed in some shape or form in the form of a consonantal cluster and exist as a whole vowel in Hakkan, as Hakkan employs only whole vowels.

The country of Slojavni is situated on the Southeastern and southern tip of the coastline of the peninsula. It shares its borders with Tithkeim to the west, Sloya to the northwest, and Yliyrt to the north.
