Vardin (Language)

Vardin is my consonantal root language. Highly experimental with a possibility I'm doing it all wrong.

Additionally, it's the language of the Vardin people and has four grammatical genders: rogue, hunter, householder, and plain. There are three grammatical numbers: singular, plural, collective, and a category of nouns where the number is considered "null", as the form is not identical to the singular.
