Mänean is a dialect continuum spoken in [[Mänea]]. This article will focus on the standard language (AKA Mikomä Mänean).
 
+
This page should be an IN-UNIVERSE description of the language. It is also NOT the primary documentation site of your language. This is not your descriptive grammar, this is a wikipedia style page for (for the most part) non-linguists, which means I don't want pages of paradigm tables or hour long write ups of the intricacies of relativisation on demoted inverted objects in locational clauses.
+
 
+
Start writing your page here, with a general introduction and basic facts about the language (when and where its spoken, by who and how many, a brief history)
