About Kyrete Kyrete is a priori language, so it is very different from every other natural language you've been exposed to. Kyrete can be written both vertically and horizontally, however vertical writing is preferred. The character's of Kyrete's writing system form an alphasyllabary, a set of 120 consonant vowel pairs. All words follow a CV[CV[CV[CV]]] structure. Each CV pair is a morpheme, each representing either a semantic prime or a grammatical modifier like an honorific, or to express a tense. As a general rule, sentences in Kyrete should be short, concise, contain no articles, and express no tenses.
