This language is a language which has no verbs, no pronouns, no vowels, and rather fluid word order. All clauses are in brackets. It is related somehow to Гышфту.

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 17 possible syllables and all of them consist of a single consonant.

The alphabet/syllabary consists of symmetrical glyphs. The alphabetical order (in Roman transliteration) is:
p s t l w k 'p 's 't 'l 'w 'k v r "v "r

GrammarEdit

It doesn't have any verbs. Relations between words are created using word modifiers, whixh usually surround the word. The first letter is usually egressive at the prior part and ingressive at the part after. 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 are bijective base 16. This means there is no zero, and there is a specific number representing sixteen.

Numbers
English In Language
1 one p
2 two s
3 three t
15 fifteen 'v
16 sixteen 'r
17 seventeen sp
34 thirty-four ts

When used in a sentence, these are surrounded by number markers (see below).

ModifiersEdit

Normal

Inanimate Locative (both parties are animate) = H: lt-'lt O: lt-'lt
lt statue 'lt lt death 'lt = The statue and death happened at the same general place.

IDK Case (both parties are separate) = H: tl-'tl O: tl-'tl

Partitive (head is part of other) = H: pl-'pl O: p'l-'p'l
pl man 'pl p'l hand 'p'l = The man's hand

Comparative (compares two things (using X)) = X: sv-sv H: st-'st O: s't-'s't
sv courageous sv st person 'st s't man 's't= The person is courageous compared to the man.

Modified/Modifier (modifier is head) = H: wt-'wt O: w't-'w't
wt causation 'wt w't happiness 'w't = The happiness which causes something

Allative+Dative(shows X going to H from O) = X: kr-kr H: kt-'kt O: k't-'k't
kr information kr kt man 'kt k't book 'k't = The information goes from the book to the man.

Causative/Instrumental (the thing that caused it to happen is the head) = H: pw-'pw O: p'w-'p'w
pw man 'pw p'w hammer 'p'w = There was a hammer because of the man OR The man causes something to happen using the hammer OR The man uses the hammer to do something.

Non-Word

Name Marker (marks name, which is the only thing it goes around; goes inside other modifiers) = H: ll-'ll
wt ll Johnny 'll 'wt w't pl man 'pl 'w't p'l hand 'p'l = the hand of the man named Johnny.

Thing Number Marker (for defining the number of nouns; around number N outside modifiers and around O inside modifiers) = N: pj-jp O: 'pj-j'p
pj 5 jp pl 'pj man j'p 'pl p'l hand 'p'l = the hands of five men

Placement Number Marker (for clarifying sentence order; the number indicates the number of words one should skip backwards in the sentence to find the right word; around number N outside modifiers) = N: sj-js
wt green 'wt wt happy 'wt w't cat 'w't sj 3 js w't man 'w't = The man is green and the cat is happy. (Without this, the sentence would be "The man is happy and the cat is green.")
