About Teknite
; мehεnoem ;

Update (2017:02:04): Conscript! It is named Kirentar.

Teknite is a language spoken in and around the Trigid (Trigita's) kingdom of Tehyena, which is located at the island of Tenefe, northwest of Mina. This language is the least grammatically inter-related of the Kitrian languages. Much of the Teknite population has stopped speaking Teknite in favor of Lithian, partly due to Teknite's complexities. Now, it is "the scientific language" of Trigita.

> Nouns, in this manner, has "adjectival homonyms" in the dictionary - This is due to how Teknite adjectives works - using adjectivizing suffixes (-enne, -inni, etc.), and the dictionary lists the root words.

> Copula often conjuncts with the noun, e.g. this translation.
