About Tsuchi An agglutinative conlang with unbreakable word order, this is because words change meaning via juxtaposition. The agglutination can get insane rather quickly. There are two "dialects" if you will, in that there is old and new Tsuchi. Old Tsuchi, Tsuchi Nashka, is spoken exclusively by those living on the Zhlokitírva and varies slightly in phonology along with having no shortened affixes as well as different sounds mapped to different characters making it difficult for the two groups to understand each other in writing despite being the same nationality and possibly even living right beside each other.
P.S: Please ignore the \ in the Phrasebook, I don't know how they got there and I can't get rid of them. I've resorted to calling it the great backslash infection of Kunaratyyra.

Language family relationships
[view] Tsuchi Zúza (New Tsuchi)A dialect that is disputed, having only arisen in the most recent generation it is difficult to tell if it is the next step in Tsuchi's evolution or merely a dialect soon to die off. This version of Tsuchi was made by the young people after a revolution, to align with the massive political shift around 56 years ago after overthrowing the fascist regime. Originally used to communicate in secret, it became the official language when new legislation was created post-revolution.
[view] Tsuchi Nashka (Old Tsuchi)The dialect of Tsuchi spoken by those in government for official matters to simplify the legal process because of the founding documents of Kunaratyyra being written in the contemporary Tsuchi from years ago, though this is considered a dialect, it is in fact an older version of Tsuchi, Middle Tsuchi, that has not been modified very much hence its name of "Old Tsuchi". Outside of legal contexts, the nearest you will find is the dialect spoken in the somewhat insular Zhlokitírva Peninsula.
