A constructed language by David J. Peterson.

Though I'm certain it's been done before, it's still rather rare to find a language whose roots lie in the Eskimo languages (and rarer still, the Caucasian languages).

Language sources: As I alluded to above, my main inspiration was drawn from the Siglitun dialect of Inuvialuktun, but I also drew inspiration from Georgian and Middle Egyptian.

This language is verb-heavy, such that most verbs are long and morphologically complex. The main work of the language is done through derivational suffixes (or circumfixes) that are added to nouns to create verbs.
