About Insectian 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. One of the most widely spoken languages in my conworld.
Some features:
~ 24 noun cases
- Some noticeable differences between formal and informal language. The main of them is that the informal is much more agglutinative
- Huge number of phonemesn and wide use of the sibilants
- The vocabulary is based on Portuguese, Finnish, Norwegian, Russian, Polish and Scottish Gaelic
- Circumflex(^) used for vowels pronounced deeply in throat
- Grave(` ) used for long vowels
- No "I" pronoun. Instead of it, insectoids say "this individual"
