I tried to contradict multiple linguistic universals and make strange sounds, while also making a language with an artificial history. Eventually, I ended up not contradicting all that many, honestly.

PhonotacticsEdit

In this language, all consonants are syllabic and they cannot be non-syllabic. This means that there are 14 possible syllables and all of them consist of a single consonant.

GrammarEdit

It doesn't have any verbs. Relations between words are created using word modifiers, most (but not all) of which are cases and most (but not all) of which come before the word proper and are written separately. Both the head word and the word to which the action applies are declined, but in different ways. If there is an equal relationship, both are declined in the same way.

NumbersEdit

The numbers consist of a base 16 system.
