About Old Nesyanian There was a change of plans and a general purge, so everything is under construction.

Random info

• actually a language isolate - I created a separate langfam for it only because there are two stages of the language (this one and its modern descendant,  Nesyanian)
• not to be confused with  Old Desani
• because of all the apostrophes it looks like a silly stereotypical lang made for a Z-class fantasy book
• a bit agglutinative, a bit analytical
• who needs bilabial stops when you can have fricatives?
• fun fact: I have purged the dictionary like 5 times
