Lyanjen is the language of the Shrislia, a human people inhabiting a
peninsula on the planet Tenja. It is a strongly inflecting but partially
agglutinative SVO language with an unusual trigeminate case system
(nominative, agentive, and patientive, as well as genitive, locative, and
dative). It is a very conservative language which has evolved little in 1300
years, largely due to the isolation in which its people have lived.
