Sinnish

Sinnish is my first conlang, one that underwent many different revisions over the years as my linguistic knowledge increased. For many years, it was my 'personal' conlang. The name comes from the original idea of the language, which was the language for a marginalized group (i.e. 'sinners').

Sinnish was not designed to be naturalistic, but began to reflect greater linguistic sophistication in later revisions.

Some key features of Sinnish are:

  • SOV word order
  • Copula functionality is handled by stative verbs
  • Adjective functionality is handled through relative clauses involving stative verbs
  • Zero morpheme formation of stative verb stems and nominalization

Documentation for Sinnish is forthcoming.
