A constructed language by David J. Peterson.

Zhyler features 57 noun cases, in part due to a diachronic change where all postpositions in the language fused onto the nouns they modified, at which point a vowel harmony system came into being. Zhyler also has 17 noun classes, not unlike those found in the Bantu language family.

Language sources: Turkish, Swahili, Middle Egyptian, Mbasa, Kamakawi, and English.

Word building and derivation are tied into the noun class system. The language has only nouns and adjectives, with a few adverbs. Either nouns or adjectives can be inflected as verbs.
