About Monyo Monyo is spoken as a native language throughout  Yakormonyo and is its official language. It is an analytical, semi-agglutinating language, which uses markers for all grammatical forms (except plural). There are no interrogative pronouns, instead a particle/adposition is added at the end of the sentence which corresponds to the answer one wants to get. If it is a polar question, only intonation is changed.
