From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search

The Summer Tongue is the language used by the peoples of the Summer Islands.[1] Some features of the language are: the lack of pronouns, the possibility of an imperfective aspectual marker, the probability of OSV sentence structure.[citation needed]

The "xh" in the Summer Islander's name Jalabhar Xho may be a spelling for a click sound, as in the real-world Zulu and Khoisan languages.
