Khesify Roha [k͡xɛ:sɪfy rœhæ], "Speech Full of Wind", is the modern language of Windy Coast of Grundet.

I wanted to create a page for this language in case I'd expand it later or someone else would like to give it a go.

Basics

Khesify Roha has the Object-Verb-Subject system and head-finality. Nouns together with pronoun marks serve as verbs so the third singular mark is always used when another noun is the subject. First person dual and plural pronouns have clusitivity distinction, and most nouns also have a dual number.

Wanted to experiment a bit.
