About Tanaþekńabmi Tanaþekńabmi is an agglutinative language with influences from whatever I learned in undergrad. It was created using the principles of Optimality Theory to define its phonology. Spoken by a people displaced by Sino-Tibetan peoples, specifically the language fossilised in the first standardised writing system for the people. The people group is located in northern Yunnan, with loanwords from Proto-Sino-Tibetan and Proto-Tai. One of the earliest attested writing systems, some of the diaspora later adopted Chinese characters. A civilisation similar to the Khmer, they placed an extreme emphasis on laws and regulations. Writing was also held as a necessity to know the sacred law. Being fairly isolated, the centralised state did not affect the surrounding tribes other than trade, and made subsequent Chinese expansion difficult. Earliest writings and archaeological evidence of a state started around 3000 BC. Tanaþekńabmi refers to the literary language of the classical period (2000 BC - 1000 BC) and the subsequent lingua franca until the collapse (200 BC) and eventual Sinicization reforms during the Tang dynasty (630 AD).
