He who produces magically enhanced potatoes which are capable of understanding shall be given a gift consisting of zibbles by order of the king. -Rutadadsi

It has been discovered that magically enhanced potatoes become sentient and declare war on us.

Therefore, those who produce magically enhanced potatoes shall be given a full complement of zibbles.

These zibbles shall punish them, and might also eat the potatoes.


Free word order, but typically OVS

Adjectives follow nouns and adverbs follow verbs

Relative clauses follow nouns, and mark the role of the noun on the verb

No plurals or articles


modifier + root


root + suffix

the same character twice in a row will be deduplicated (note that h is always the end of a digraph)

when 2 vowels are in contact, delete the one lower on this chain:

o > u > ai = a > i > ei > e

in the case of a coming into contact with ai, leave them both and put an apostrophe between them

when the same vowel (other than a) occurs in 2 consecutive syllables:

1. delete the first one

2. if 1. produces an invalid consonant cluster (see below) delete the second one instead

3. if both 1. and 2. produce invalid clusters, move the first one down one place in the above vowel hierarchy

a valid consonant cluster is any single consonant followed by t or k, or f or s before or after any single consonant when not at the beginning or end of a word
