A constructed language by Maknas.
Rosakeat is spoken throughout much of the southern hemisphere of Serakus. It is based around a fairly complex root system and heavy ablaut. The grammar is very far removed from Indo-European, containing detailed descriptions of unusual constructions and forms. Its spelling system is on par with English for complexity.
Language sources: The phonology was clearly influenced by Russian, as it has a complete series of palatalized consonants alongside the nonpalatalized. Morphologically, Hebrew was the main inspiration, as its triconsonantal root system inspired Rosakeat's broken root. The syntax is mostly new. The inspiration for the nasty spelling came from English, although the realization is completely different.
The main goal was to get far from the IE model, yet still be a realistic language.
Most interest is from several of the members of the ZBB.
