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.
