About Reformed 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.

This version of Monyo was the reformed version imposed by the UKMD, spoken during the time of Maiheroa.
