About Hoevisi Hoevisi is an Asuranesian language located in the country of Nautwa in the Asuran Ocean. It is spoken by almost 452,000 people, mostly by the Lorhinese. The language evolved from Lotosi at around 1773 and has grown rapidly throughout the 20th century until the population of Nautwa stabilized in 2002.

The language is mostly Analytic, but has some inflection in its verb conjugations. Hoevisi has a quite a few particles and determiners: case, aspect, and even tense are expressed through particles or determiners. While vowel diphthongs are allowed, consonant clusters are forbidden. Hoevisi follows the CV(V) syllable structure.

Hoevisi is written in both the Latin script and the New Wakawala (NW) script. Old Wakawala (OW) can be found across the Nautwa islands on rocks, trees, and caves. The OW script evolved from the Pre-Modern Cananganamese script that was introduced in the Middle Ages. The New script was created in 1936 by Lokotetissatta Sanuvawa te Lawimokono, a female Dalar Devotionist missionary from Tuanmali who later adopted Lorhinese culture. The Latin script is primarily used by the government and Lorhinese scientists; while NW script is used by the general populous for everyday writing and reading. Books printed in the NW script are generally printed in left to right, vertical, bottom to top; though it could be written in practically any direction. Both the OW and the NW scripts were written in any direction that felt comfortable. OW and NW are inspired by the Ogham script.

Hoevisi is primarily inspired by Polynesian languages.
