- Language family: fictional language
A constructed language by Rebecca Harbison.
Darynese was my first real language attempt, so I did end up making it OVS... it didn't occur to me that there might be a reason why most languages have the subject proceed the object.
Language sources: Used in the creator's space-opera web comic, Phoenix Dawn.
I wanted to construct a language that was very precise for interpersonal relationships -- this is important to the conculture that goes with the language, so it makes sense they would develop a lot of words for it (sort of inverse Saper-Whorf!).
Used in the 10th Conlang Translation Relay.
