Emyt fka. Emmut (em. ral-ęmut sur'atkan /ɾalʔeĩmɯt sɯɹʔatkan/, pol. język ęmucki) - an a priori conlang with some nostratic elements, one of the best described conlangs of Miłosz Mazurkiewicz. It has mainly agglutinative with many polysynthetic and flective elements.

The language is a part of Et (Edut) language con-family. The most related Edyt languages are Belldallud and Ymnit.

It was also thought as funlang, part of Polish group conworld project Gruszki Na Wierzbie (Pears in the Sky, lit. Pears on the Willow).


Syllables take main part in Emyt phonology. Consonants clusters are only allowed at syllables' boundaries (final + initial).

Every Emyt syllable consists of:

  • onset - initial consonant or glottal stop;
  • nucleus - oral (monomoraic) or nasal (dimoraic) vowel;
  • coda (optional) - final consonant.

There are no trimoraic syllables (eg. having nasal vowel and coda, or two final consonants):

  • da [dæ] - oral vowel; open, light syllable;
  • [dæɨ̯̃] - nasal vowel; open, heavy syllable;
  • dak [dæ̆k] - oral vowel; closed, heavy syllable.
