Haseh

Origin & Writing

As the language originated by Drake, the language is very limited in the scope of sounds. Their tongues are thing, and as such it is impossible for them to make many sounds. It is easier for them to create consonant sounds than vowels for this reason. As a result from the limited sounds available, many words in Haseh become quite long. This also lead to Haseh being highly context reliant, so as to not spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to say one simple idea.
  Also, due to the drake's anatomy, they are only capable of creating specific vowels. These vowels are ones that don't require lip movement, meaning only open vowels. When the vowels combine, they create diphthongs of only open vowels, never any that require lip maneuvering. For two of the same vowel, it does not change the sound but lengthen the time the vowel is pronounced. They also add hisses, growls/grumbles, and humming to their vowels to have as many vowels as consonants.
  Haseh was originally clawed into stone or tree bark. They based their written language around their mouths as that is the part of the drake that both hunts, talks, and creates flame (something important and holy to many drake).
  The language is a Syllabary.
