Yēni Dzizhij ( /ˈyʔæːnɪ ˈ~dð̪ɪʒɪj/ - "New Dzizhij") is an imaginary language created in 2015-2016. Its primary purpose is to make secret communication possible, even if the language is spoken in public. It uses a simple but unique gramattical structure.

There are no verbs in Yēni Dzizhij. It's a strictly isolating language. Most of the vocabulary is made up of words from the natural languages Azerbaijani and Ukrainian. It's written using a specialized latin alphabet. None of the consonants is aspirated, except /h/ itself. Its six vowels occur as a short and a long vowel.

Classification and DialectsEdit

Yēni Dzizhij is based on Dzìzhìj, an imaginary language which has never been finished. The vocabulary is to a large extent the same, but the grammar has undergone massive changes (See "Grammar" below). As Yēni Dzizhij has been developed recently, there is only a standard language and no dialect.

As Yēni Dzizhij is intended for secret communication, it's an artistic language.
