About Szezk Szezk /ʃɛzk/ (Šецka; /ɕjezskä/) is an an a-priori, aesthetically Slavic language, which evolved from the Baredan language family, and is cousins with
 Sjuutsay and  Norjihani. The grammar and elements of the phonology have since become greatly distinguished, but much of the vocabulary is still closely related.

Features:
Cases: Nom/acc morphosyntatic alignment with no case marking.
Genders: Nouns have no lexical gender, but four genders exist for both singular and plural third person pronouns.
Verbs:
always completely regular
  • Marked voices and moods: Imperative, passive, causative, subjunctive
  • Personal and tense conjugation: 1st/2nd/3rd person, singular/plural, non-past/past/non-past progressive/past progressive (4th person stays in the infinitive regarding personal conjugation)

Grammatical Numbers: Singular and plural. (Noun plurality is marked by the preceding particle 'ı', which is inserted into pronouns to indicate plurality). Adjectives do not decline, and are not distinguished from adverbs.
Word Order: Primarily SVO, with occasional optional variation to diversify expression.
Orthography: Conscript with some small influences from  Proto-Baredan.
Agglutinative Properties: Due to the nature of conjugation structure, one verb can convey a lot with affixes, although Szezk is still generally classed as fusional.
Compound words can be formed when multiple nouns coalesce to form relatively significant vocabulary: compound verbs exist when formed under the same conditions with adverbs and adpositions.
