About Tarvelian Redux of a language for my NS nation, Tarvelia.

Some Characteristics:
-Phonemic stress
-Lack of true open vowel
-Complex consonant clusters (comparable to those of Slavic languages)
-OSV word order (an evident favorite of mine)
-Nominal and pronominal gender
-Subject-verb agreement pertaining to person, number, and gender
-Four verb tenses (infinitive, past, present, future)
-Unmarked aspect depending on tense (with tenses having an"assumed aspect")
-Three verb voices (passive, middle, and active), with active being unmarked
-Core vocabulary hinting at Nostratic origin, with moderate-to-strong phoneme correspondences
-High lecical density, and would be spoken at a more relaxed pace than English
