About Insectian Insectian is a language of the insectoids race(yep, D'Vorah's kind) in my conworld. Official language of Ynsitia, the country of insectoids. It's one of the most widely spoken langs in that world: the population of other countries is from ~3 000 000 to ~9 000 000 while there's 27 000 000 in Ynsitia! Now, about Insectian:
~ 24 noun cases
- Huge number of sounds which makes the phonology pretty hard
- Portuguese, Karelian, Norwegian, Russian, Polish and Scottish Gaelic vocabularies mixed
- Circumflex(^) used for vowels pronounced deeply in throat
- Grave(` ) used for long vowels
- No "I" pronoun. Instead of it, insectoids say "this one"
- A lot of "hissing"...well, I actually mean "buzzing": [ʒ] and [d͡ʒ] are typical for this language and used a lot which makes it sound like the real language of insectoids
