About Teşkami a fairly analytic/weakly inflecting language with a minimalist-ish phonology

action nominalizations are fun! slowly writing up stuff about the grammar as it solidifies.

some people might find it boring, but they are wrong and it's actually them who are boring. how bout that!

→ şo ki deşen adel!
