Place & SpeakersWatsound is spoken by a population of around 2,000 .
Species Human/humanoid
About Watsound  Watsound was my first conlang (initially called Primelang, but then abandoned this idea as it sounds too generic)
The idea is that this is one of the earliest speeches in my conworld. And all languages in this conworld will be eventually descended from it.

The phonology is really simple.
2 nasals, 3 stops, h, l and a flap.
5 vowels (a, e, o, ǝ, œ).

Highly agglutinative e.g. big - "u-kanah-emd"
Were u (adjectival prefix), kanah (more), emd (encoding result)

Grammar is really nonexistent simple.
No tenses.
No gender.
3 cases.
3 numbers.
Adjectives agree only in number.
The only thing that defines grammar is its strict VSO word order.

On hold for now because I'm fully into developing its daughter lang.  Oceanic
