About Ynsitish Well, firstly, it's not a CWSP lang, don't mind this bug

Second, it's the language of the insectoids and their country, Ynsitia; powerful state and the most populated country with majestic gothic-like and baroque-like architecture - and, however, the poorest and the second most bureaucratic(first being Čeoaeaiea) country, with matriarchy and overfunding of police, rulled under the iron hand of Her Majesty Queen Oobrah(Điw Maȥeştađi Raïnja Ubra) with a lot longer full name

Ynsitish is one of the most widely spoken languages in my conworld. Some other features of Ynsitish are:
~ 24 noun cases(two more in the Eemyk dialect)
- Huge difference in formal and informal languages
- Huge number of phonemes and frequent use of sibilants
- The vocabulary based on Portuguese, Finnish, Norwegian, Russian, Polish and Scottish Gaelic
- No "I" pronoun. Instead of it, insectoids say "this individual"

The standard language is archaic, a lot less agluttinative than any dialect, spoken by the queen and sounds kinda like if Udmurt and Canadian French had a baby. The colloquial speech in the capital city of Shtoorat(Şturət) and nearby is basically like the queen's Ynsitish, but with more phoneme gradation and the grammar of other dialects.

Language family relationships
[view] Akslą (Akslonish)The dialect of the county of Akslonia, which is mainly associated with comedians, chefs, mafia and the stereotype about the locals who swear the most and party the hardest alongside with the locals of Izhysegh.

And Aklonish dialect sounds even more like Polish
[view] Annum (Annum Ynsitish)Spoken of the Annum island, the most northern region of Ynsitia, known mainly for mafia, sorcery and swamps. The dialect of Annum has implosives, ejectives, creaky vowels and the labial click
[view] Aşkəm (Ashkm Ynsitish)Spoken in Ashkm, the county that's usually known as Ynsitia's most biologically diverse region with a lot of natural monuments and the locals being "closest to the nature" as well. Askhm has its "dark side", though, and is also known for the creepiest legends in all of Ynsitia.

Their dialect is basically like the colloquial Ynsitish of the capital and nearby, but d̵̛ͅi̵̪͎̯̔̚s̵̘͚͉̍͒t̸̨͊͋̓ó̸̤̃́ṟ̶̐̑t̶͕̔ë̶̬̱̺͐̇d̴̨̰̲̆
[view] Aşkuş (Ashkushan)The dialect of the Ashkush county, the "Ashkm's little bro", known for the biodiversity as well. It's also one the most watery places in my conworld - with rivers, lakes and waterfalls nearly everywhere, and where it rains the most in at least all of Ynsitia.

Their dialect is pretty similar to the Ashkm dialect too, but it's a bit less d̷i̵s̸t̷o̸r̵t̷e̷d̸, spams i and u and has more Russian words
[view] İmøg (Eemyk Ynsitish)The dialect of the county of Eemyk(İmık) or İmøg, the most southern region and the coldest region of Ynsitia, known for its mountains, swamps, gloomy sceneries and the most incomprehensible dialect, which has two more cases(egressive and terminative), spams ø and in general sounds like Komi
[view] Enedan (Enedan)Spoken in the county of Enedan, the Arizona of Ynsitia, on the very north of the mainland. The dialect of Enedan has the voiceless-aspirated-ejective distinction of plosives and in general sounds a lot like Na-Dene languages.
[view] İȥysəŕ (Izhysegh Ynsitish)Spoken in the county of Izhysegh, mainly known as "the big bro of Akslonia", because it's really big and also known for mafia and the locals who swear the most and party the hardest. But unlike Akslonia, Izhysegh is one of three regions where it snows - beside Eemyk and Annum.

Their dialect sounds kinda like Russian
[view] Länşema (Lansheman)Spoken in the province of Lanshema, which literally means Westland. The further to the west, the more it differs from the colloquial Insectian of the capital region. Thus, it has several sub-dialects, the common feature of all is the drop of flapping and thrilling r with only /ʁ/ left, shortening words and merging them with each other. It gets the craziest in the most western city and also the capital of Lanshema, Nägreb, where the language becomes almost polysynthetic
