About Telnic Telnic is the language spoken on Telna, an archipelago of the northeastern coast of Europe.

It is an isolate language, though it has been suggested to be a part of the hypothetical Proto-Nostratic languages.

Telnic primarily uses object-subject-verb word order, but due to its class system, free word order is commonly used in poetry and music. It is a tripartite language. Gender is either masculine or feminine, with even first and second person pronouns have gendered forms. Words in Telnic can have formidable consonant clusters (though, arguably, the syllabic consonants can count as vowels of sorts), in words such as sprvkali and cbṙkstvana, but are uncommon.
