About WWM It wants you to call it WWM, since its full name, Wanyima-Wanyoa, is rather long.

latest news: all words after rtali in WWM are canonical. also all homophones and words with notes.

Current status: transferring grammar to CWS, applying semantic shifts and such to vocabulary. All information on CWS so far must be considered preliminary and subject to change, but hopefully WWM will become a Real Language (TM) before long!

Australian-ish in phonology

do you like morphophonology? I sure hope you do

stress is usually initial (unmarked) or on second syllable (marked) unless there's a case prefix, but don't worry, any non-initial stress is marked

there are prefixing cases! erg-abs cases, but nom-acc verb marking (mostly; there are a couple of exceptions)

transitivity marking on most verbs!
elevation and direction marking on verbs!
wheeeeeeeeee this is a fun time

Spoken around 1000 BCE
in the pink area on the flag, in what is now Magali, Sahar. Descendants spoken across a large area of Akulanen, from northern Magali east through Shohai to northern Amerhan.
