Proportion of the Attamian ethnic groups that speaks an Tanisi language:
The Tanisi languages is a family, or group, of constructed naturalistic languages, which share common features derived the hypothetic Proto-Tanisi language. They are inspired by a diversity of natural languages, each of them with a distinct style, yet with grammatical and semantical similarities, as well as a shared vocabulary.
These are the planned Tanisi languages so far:
- Asaari - My beloved blue little language. Tonal, American, agglutinative, voiceless and written in Vai. Yes. Vai. Didn't expect that, did you? Perhaps similar to Salishan languages, Navajo and the like.
- Damian - A so far sketchy language with Greek/Slavic/Shona/Khmer influences. Possibly ergative, maybe accusative. Mangled by allophony.
- Namic - Indo-European and especially Indo-Iranian influenced language, tripartite, heavy in phonemes, heavy in cases and heavy in scope. A language revised from being a mixed a priori - a posteriori language of the Indo-Iranian branch.
- A verb based morphology.
- Agglutinative by origin, decaded into fusional in Damian and Namic.
- An inherited tonal system - Tones in Asaari and Damian, pitch in Namic.
- A language in bold denotes that it is extant.
- A language in italics denotes that it is now extinct (i.e. has no native speakers).
- † denotes the extinction of a linguistic subgroup
