Silindion is the language of the Silindi Nestë, a "elven" people who inhabit the forest
lands around a fantasy Mediterranean sea on an Earth called Onórnë. It is of
agglutinating structure however in many parts of the grammar, the morphemes
have become so fused together as to create a movement toward inflections. It is
primarily of VSO structure with the following cases: nominative, accusative,
genitive, dative, locative, instrumental, commitative, allative, adjectival,
relative, copulative, essive, and ablative. Finally, it exists in two major
varieties, the so called High-Silindion, used in court and in temples, and the
so called Low-Silindion, used in everyday speach and writings.
