About Zveahe Zveahe is a fictional natlang originating from a non-human culture. Created for a personal project originally, not for Astalva (originating later).

Among other things, Zveahe:

  • Has contrasting linguolabials and bilabials
  • Has a nasally fricated phoneme
  • Has constrasting voiceless velar and palatal fricatives
  • Distinguishes blue, violet/purple, and green, but has no basic word for yellow or orange
  • Has a considerable number of relatively simple words dedicated to atypical concepts relating to telepathy
  • Developed voiced fricative clusters from its affricates, leaving only <t͡ɬ> remaininɡ
