About Shilel 𒄿𒂊𒁕/Ieda! This is my new lang, an isolating analytical SOV thing written in Hittite cuneiform and with grammar inspired vaguely by Chinese and Japanese (although hopefully not too noticeably). It's to be used for "ancient inscriptions" in some of my personal conworld stuff, and I might work it into CWSP as a now-extinct language isolate somewhere or other, perhaps of the original Lahiri homeland before they migrated to the current island of Lahir.
