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.
