||Anatolian (with Hittite, Luwian
etc.), Late Anatolian (with Lydian, Lycian, and Sidetian)
||Spoken in a small mountainous district of Anatolia in Northern Lycia.
||Sydetic is believed to have been not the language of a particular nation,
but a mixture, a border dialect of Carian, Lydian and Lycian together.
Very scarce information can be researched about the language, but still
it is obvious it was Anatolian and was close to Carian and Lydian.
||Nothing is known for sure, except the presence of palatal consonants
and several spirants in the language.
||The noun was quickly moving towards the analytical structure, losing
some endings. The distinction between common and neuter genders was lost
because nominative case had a null ending. Genitive has -z,
which is uncommon among late Anatolian languages. At all there were about
four or five cases, and ablative, obviously, coincided with dative and
locative. Verbs are even more scarce in inscriptions, so we can just say
that the language had two main tenses, present and preterite, with the
ending -l in the 3rd person preterite, derived from the Hittite
pronominal declension. There was a participle in -rs'.
||Carian, Lydian, more distantly Lycian.
