About Enari Enari is spoken in Enarpadjo, Enarpatsa, and Dopje, three countries located on an islandoff the coast of Europe. Like its close relative,  Lentzic, it is a fusional language that has been extensively influenced by Indo-European languages. Other shared features include:
  • SVO word order (though Enari retains SOV in subordinate clauses and some simple sentences)
  • Inflection of nouns for case and verbs for tense
  • No agreement for adjectives/adverbs
  • Use of modal prefixes for verbs
  • Clitic forms of adpositions

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