Za eyani! Andin kisa da rayse.
A devastating eruption of the mighty volcano A'Tuin,
named for the legendary hero of the Kalusan people,
has destroyed much of the Great Library at Kalumani,
once the treasured respository of nearly 1800 Kalusa
sentences. Of this vast linguistic storehouse a scant
700 sentences survived the destruction.
Now the few surviving Kalusans struggle to rebuild
what was lost of their unique language. It is hoped
that out of the ashes a greater, more expressive
Kalusa will rise like the mighty Phoenix.
Will Kalusa become an extinct conlang, or will it
survive and grow? Only time will tell. Witness history
in the making at http://kalusa.fiziwig.com
