About Him Giong Him Giông is a creole language birthed from the union of the Old Elu(Sinhalese) languages of Sri Lanka and the Multhic languages of the Naga-like Mulths, who hail from the fictional hidden island of Eiramanca(literally, snowland).

Back Story
'Him Giông', literally meaning 'family language', was originally the language of the Multho-human hybrids who settled in Solhangtser,Eiramanca. Historically, these hybrids were excluded from Eiramancan society, being deemed inferior to 'pure-blooded' Mulths. However, as these close-knitted communities gradually gained political power and recognition, so did the creole, to the point that it replaced 'Muldop' as the official language of the land.

•The Language is about 80% monosyllabic, about 18% bisyllabic and about 70% analytical in nature. Despite having a moderately large set of phonemes, most phonemes are commonly found in quite a few natlangs.
•The most common word structures are (C)(V), (C)(V)(C), (C)(C)(V), (C)(C)(V)(C) and (C)(C)(V)(C)(C) and the structure of the longest word is (C)(C)(V)(V)(C)(V)(C), which is usually pronounced as 2 syllables.
•The lexicon is made up of primarily Proto-Multhic and the Multhic languages, and secondarily of Old Sinhalese and Old Sri Lankan Tamil, then other Asian languages. It also borrows a few words from the liturgical language of the Mulths;  Razzothian .
•The syntax relies on Old Sinhalese intermingled with a lot of Multhic grammatical features.
•The word order is primarily SOV, but it's not fixed.
•Currently, there are two distinguishable dialects of Him Giông; the Presthic Standard Dialect(HMG)and the Solhängtšër'm regional dialect( Solhangtedian)
