It is based on the Finland-Swedish dialect spoken by the author, and some of its notable features are how words relate to each other and to emotions, feelings, the body, and the environment around us, and also how it views and handles gender.

It contains vast improvements over the official IPA's vowel and tone systems. Its descriptive power mainly comes from its more than 1000 symbols, as well as the clear, scientific definitions of the author. While secondary to conlanging, an important facet of this system is the idea of "natural phonetics" which asks practitioners to be very familiar with the exact movements of the phonoarticulatory structure and to be very careful when attempting to record or produce particular sounds.

Image:Conlangs.png 12/04.  Maríshan is a romance-based conlang. The vocabulary is largely romance based with French being the major contributor. The grammar, however, differs greatly from typical romance languages in that it is OSV in low register form, but variable in higher register form (the order is determined by re-expressed pronouns prior to the verb). Also, unlike most romance languages (which use some form of the plural second person pronoun to express formality), Maríshan uses the register to express formality. The Maríshan/Grammar is also available, though not yet complete, it is sufficient to give the feel of the language, and to illustrate the differences and similarities between Maríshan and the romance languages from which it borrows. For examples of the language in action, see the Maríshan Babel Text, or Maríshan/Texts for a larger example.
