a new conlang has reared its ugly head in my conworld of Yhe Ghye-Ineat, The
World of Light, blood dripping from its mouth from its latest kill, and the
sweetest smile upon its dial.

Its name is above - to wit:
esa       emban                wa       waesa
this/the  speech/language of/from  -or (preposed actor particle)

nkhara   goshu
to hunt   free

The speech/language of the Free Huntresses.

The most interesting feature is that it has a CVCV pattern for verbs - nkhara
- and a VCVC pattern for nouns - emban.  Mbana means "to speak".  The
demonstrative pronous tend to follow the V(V)CV(V) pattern though, having
either vowels or diphthongs before or after the middle consonant.

Nothing of any great length has been written in it, nor is it likely to be -
the people who are its focus were relatively recently "en namei wa endot wa
embir" - made free by (own) strength and cunning; en otros palabras, they
escaped after their Yhe Farr was wounded and could no longer control them,
and the thought was that the usurper would make _them_ prey!!!  So there are
some stories about their adventures and misadventures and the establishment
of the first midwife when it became apparent that that was where the power
lay ... ;^)
