About Gobahai Gobahai (pronounced /ˈgo-ba-hai/ from the root words hoai meaning "trunk" or "core" and gabu meaning "word") is a constructed language for humans whose ancestors spoke 'Oayhàoù. Where 'Oayhàoù aimed to include all mammals, Gobahai has moved beyond that to target only humans. As such, the phonology has evolved to contain sounds that humans can make with the least effort and oral manipulation.

I'm writing more interesting things about and examples of Gobahai on the 'Oayhàoù blog, so check that out for more! I'm also going to be trying to remember to create articles here for more convenience.
