About Zulsheri A vowel harmony and labial series heavy language I'm planning on using as a major substratum for later work.

Current features of Zulsheri:
- Ergative-absolutive alignment and agglutinative morphology (it's getting more polysynthetic as the grammar develops, but whatever).
- An animacy system distinguishing between animate, inanimate, and plurative nouns.
- Advanced-retracted vowel harmony.
