Övüsi language

From The Languages of David J. Peterson

Övüsi is a language created by David Peterson for the elves from the Netflix film Bright. The language is a priori with few borrowings, due to the elves' insular nature. Despite the presence of front rounded vowels and back unrounded vowels, Övüsi has no vowel harmony. While I intended for Castithan to be a language that was spoken very quickly, the result was a failure, resulting in rapid fire bursts punctuated by numerous halting pauses. In Övüsi, I tried to correct the mistakes I made with Castithan and create a truly speedy language. I believe I was quite successful this time around.
