-Fusional
-VSO Sentence Structure
-Verbs are Romance inspired
-3 Verbal Tenses; Present, Past, Future
-12 Moods including Dubitive, Interrogative, Assumptive, and Emphatic (Some of which can stack on each other)
-Participles conjugate for Tense and Mood

-So many contractions
-Nouns decline only for Number and the Genitive
-Phonetic Orthography
-A Vowel Hierarchy used to create Augmentatives and Numbers
-20+ Honorifics
-Inviting Phonology (with a love of fricatives)
-Vocabulary is full of jokes to myself and Sindarin
