A constructed language by Rik Roots.
Gevey has been brewing for over 25 years, and has developed a number of idiosyncrasies during that time. For instance, the concept of "object status" is highly important in the language. The detachable relative clauses are fairly unique (using a system of conjunctions inspired by switch case). "Associated" and "dissociated" forms of each noun are also a central part of the language.
Language sources: Bits and pieces from all over, to be honest. The lexicon is almost entirely a priori.
Gevey has an agglutinative approach with isolating touches. Topic/comment syntax plays a strategic role in word order, and conjunctions have a key role in determining clause types.
The Gevey Language Resource website is best thought of as an "art installation", and should be of interest to those who view conlanging as an art form.
