The official language of the People's Republic of Syoranka



Technically a purely varkanic language, with many loanwords (most loanwords are of Middle Terminian origin, via Piringian Creole).
It is an inworld constructed language based on a mix of all languages spoken in modern-day Syoranka, with relatively heavy influence from Literary Piringish, the old official language of the Insular Kingdom of Piringia essentially glorified slang tbh
Some aspects pf the grammar are inspired by recontructions of Proto-Varkanic, so as to not prioritise one specific language as a base.
The script is Letso-Terminian because all praise Hosha
The recordings I make (if I get around to them) are meant to represent various informal standard pronunciations that would be heard in Syoranka, and is thus fairly lazy wrt the IPA, which represents the more formal standard.
