About Classic Hoku Hoku Kugasha, "Proper-Language of Hoku", is one of the native languages ​​of the planet Hokushoku, second planet of the Nebeza binary system, which is inhabited by the Hoku, a race of warm-blooded reptile-like humanoids.
Commonly referred to as Classic Hoku, as one of the oldest and most diffused parent languages ​​in this world I've build.

Hoku Kugasha has a left-to-right writing/reading and is written through logography (at the moment), that is, individual symbols have their own meanings, and complex words are written through the combined meaning of various symbols (CVN like), and read through pronouncing their sounds / character names in full (there are some exceptions to this rule as well), and it is more likely a proto-language as it is now.

The anatomy of a hoku's mouth allows them to pronounce the words in their natural state, but a human being does not have the same structure as the elongated jaw or resonating box at the top of the mouth that would allow the words to be clearly highlighted. This obstacle can be reasonably circumvented by projecting the voice in front of the mouth, pouting as the words are spoken.
