About Middle Uzili
UNDER CONSTRUCTION - ALL INFORMATION REGARDING UZIL AND ITS LANGUAGE IS TENTATIVE AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE


• Quinary number system [from  Proto-Varkanic]
• Simple affix-based grammar - mostly fusional/agglutinative [from  Proto-Varkanic]
• A large volume of intra-Varkanic compound verbs - lexicon is primarily internally derived
• Evolution from  Proto-Varkanic: new feature (two verb tenses: present and non-present)
• Verb structure and formula has also changed significantly
• Unmarked accusative
• Subjunctive marked by first-syllable reduplication
• Mild derivational morphology - nouns can take entirely new meanings based on their nominal tense. Several words can be formed out of one root noun.
• Nominal morphology from  Old Uzili has been simplified.

The Uzilic branch actually began as a personal lang and evolved into worldbuilding and naturalistic diachronics. Phonetically speaking, it has large consonant and vowel inventories and a prevalence of prenasalization. The morphonology, although seemingly complex, is actually quite simple and, in a way, compensates for the tricky phonology.
