About Enari Enari is spoken in three countries somewhere off the coast of Europe. Like its close relative,  Lentzic, it has been extensively influenced by Indo-European languages. Other shared features include:
  • SVO word order
  • Inflection of nouns for case and verbs for tense
  • No adjective-noun agreement
  • No distinction between adjectives and adverbs
  • Use of modal prefixes
  • Adpositions as affixes

Enari, however, has lost verb conjugation by person, number, and voice, relying more heavily on word order, affixes, and pronouns.
