/welcome/
Welcome!

Eo'iona is a tonal language spoken mainly in the Oea'i Islands (Óeâ'i).

It uses S(O)V word order, and V(O)S for questions. Ditransitive verbs use SO1VO2, or O2VO1S for questions; for example, "Did I give you food?" becomes "Food give you I?" and "I give you food" becomes "I you give food".

Features:
  • Tonal
  • All transitive verbs are also valid intransitive verbs, and ditransitive verbs are valid as transitive verbs or intransitive verbs (for example, "I give", "I give [to] you", and "I give you food" are all valid sentences and use the same verb)

Adjectives and adverbs come before the words they modify.
