About Dwaka (updating it by staring over)

Dwaka (魚難) was a language created for the Church of god (火人弓土人十) by Pwa Zip wa(ㄆㄠㄗㄭㄆㄠ). Pwa Zip wa was born Ezekiel Oziel to an american home in 1920. His parents converted to christianity shortly before his birth and became extremely devout Christians as a result. Ezekiel would fight in WW2 for the American side in 1941 and he would marry a Chinese woman named Lei Zhu in 1947. A few years later he read 1984 and he had a dream that the book would come true. He believed his dream to be a warning from god so he fled society with his wife to start the church of god. There he created the language Dwaka with inspiration from his wife to help people become closer to god. Lei Zhu would change her name to Swa Dig Wa (ㄉㄭㄍㄠ) in 1950 along with her husband. The 2 had 8 children the youngest son Pi Kwib Wa (ㄆㄭㄎㄞㄅㄠ) would take over the church when his father passed away in 1980.

Dwaka has two writing systems Twugkha (中難) and Twugtu (中中).
Zaka are Chinese chaicters and most have the same meaning as the original. These characters are combined to make new words.
Zaza are the bopomofo script and is used for beginning readers, names, and for grammar. The Zaza script consist of:
p ㄅ ph ㄅ˙ b ㄆ t ㄉ th ㄉ˙ d ㄊ k ㄍ kh ㄍ˙ g ㄎ sh ㄒ r ㄖ
a ㄚ wa ㄠ i ㄭ wi ㄞ ə (u) ㄣ wə (wu) ㄥ

Dwakwa has a strict SVO word order and is written up to down in most instances but can be written right to left if necessary. It has a simple grammar system with few affixes overall. Though there are a few to modify a word to become a noun, verb, or an adjective.
