Skerre

The Skerre language and people came into existence in 1994 and have undergone numerous changes since then. Skerre, as currently conceived, is spoken by (fictitious) pre-Iron Age hunter-gatherers who live in a mountainous region of continent not too unlike North America. The language itself is a phonologically-simple, mildly agglutinative, and head-initial. It is of vaguely Pacific Rim areal affiliation and of unknown genetic affiliation. The pages below discuss the language and its people more in-depth in addition to providing numerous examples of the language.
