About Zadrusian
ZADRUZKÉSH

Zadruzkésh is spoken in the country of Zadruzvél in the continent of Igresia. It is a member of the Galeric branch of the Igresian language family.

It's spoken by around 44 million in the country of Zadruzvél, and by about 127 million worldwide. It's widely spoken in the eastern world, and often used as a lingua franca in many areas.

Zadruzkésh is predominantly analytical, with flares of agglutination here and there. It's entirely head-initial with a strict VSO word order and an Ergative-Absolutive alignment. It has a love for idiomatic phrases and speech, but is very consistent in it's grammar and spelling. It's bigest inconsistency is gender agreement, in which the forms for adjectives, specifically, vary a lot between the different genders, are often unpredictable.
