In 1966, linguists found a language spoken by three people in the Hamaijan Rural District, in Iran. Their notes have been lost for a while, they have been rediscovered and the language, called Hadandi is a descendent of Elamite.

/b t d t͡ʃ d͡ʒ k g/ <b t d č j k g>
/m n/ <m n>
/f v s z ʃ ʒ x ɣ/ <f v š ž h gh>
/r l/ <r l>
/j/ <y>

/i a u e o/ <i a u e o>

Nouns do not decline for case, but take the plural suffix -(a/i)f. A genitive case can be found, -n for singular nouns ending in vowels, and -i, for plural nouns, and nouns ending in consonants.
Yeghi "Brother"
Yeghif "Brothers"
Yeghin "Brother's"
Yeghifi "Brothers'"

Haghay "friend"
Haghayif "Friends"
Haghayi "Friend's
Haghayifi "Friends'"
Many children make up, or begin to make up, imaginary languages. I have been at it since I could write.

Are we permitted to assume the first paragraph or first two sentences are fiction?
