A constructed language by Mark Rosenfelder.
Cadhinor is the ancestor languages of many of Mark's other languages, including Barakhinei, Ismain and Verdurian. Cadhinor is itself descended from Proto-Eastern. The grammar is written as if it were a native grammar of the language: "I've decided to post a translation of Pere aluatas i Cadhinor, by the Verdurian scholar Shm Fatandor Revouse, published in 3417, and intended for avisar (secondary school) students. It should not be taken as the best Verdurians can do; that would be the scholarly, three-volume Aluatas Shriftanáei Cadhinei (University Grammar of Cadhinor). I've chosen Revouse because it's popular and typical of Verdurian attitudes toward languages-- it's like a Verdurian Teach Yourself."
