Standard Modern Dryadian (SMD)

Introduction
Standard Modern Dryadian (Thael Sihrósin Zdrís Zdriády [θeɪl ɕɪɾ̥ɔɕɪn zðɾis zðɾʲædʒ]) is the language spoken by the Dryads two centuries after the first contact with humans. Upon first contact the writing underwent a small reformation to reflect the grammar of the spoken language that had developed over the centuries since the unification of the tribes by the Meliae Dryads. The language spoken at the time of reformation was Early Modern Dryadian. Standard Modern Dryadian is the offspring of this earlier form, and retains most of Early Modern Dryadian's grammatical features. The pronunciation, however, is different and much of the spelling is retained from Classical Meliae Dryadian (therefore, unlike its ancestors, the spelling is not phonetic and has many rules for pronunciation).
