About Ashbarni

{breaking lore for a sec: the actual script is still being worked on, there are even more wacky characters to come!}

/ˈma:ʃara:tʰiʃuj najˈmu:jdiʃ ujkʰaˈtu:ʃuni raˈʃu:jada:gu:j ˈmu:kʰa:jnaj aʃˈba:rni aˈkʰu:ni/

These words were written with the hand of Uyk'a-Tūš in our, Ashbarni, language.

A long forgotten ancient language isolate once spoken by circa 300 000 people in the Ashbarni Kingdom (locally also kasirath <‍kaširat'>, /ˈkaʃiratʰ/, "homeland, native land" ). It is an agglutinative language, though its later forms show some signs of fusion in certain cases.

Nouns, pronouns and verbs have only paucal and plural numbers; it is unknown how or why Ashbarni lost the singular, or if it even had it in the first place; it is theorised, though, that the singular and paucal (or former dual) merged, as pronouns and verbs have many of their forms merged similarly too;
