About Monyo Monyo is spoken as a native language throughout  Yakormonyo. It has a very interesting writing system, where all letters are considered vowels. It is an analytical language, with a short, staccato-like sound. It has one retroflex letter, which appears in the forms koL or xeL. There are no interrogative pronouns, instead a sentence is said and a particle/adposition is added at the end which corresponds answer one wants to get. If it is a polar question, only intonation is changed.

[view] Samej up Zfatu (Samejinon)Samejinon is a dialect spoken in the southern Oblasts of the Toşe Region. It is more old-school, with archaic conjunctions like 'mo' (or) and 'kor' (that), and classical pronounciations like /ɘ/ (i). There are many loanwords from Fáknir. The copula is also removed, with tenses being added to the object.
Ex. "j Ka se an Nsu." (I am a boy.) versus standard "j Ka se Nozn aj an t."
