Welcome to the Hardmoks language!

In short: Hardmoks is what happens if Pirahã and Alekano make a baby with disordered speech and no history, as if Pirahã wasn't disordered enough.

A bit longer: Hardmoks is an experiment on the feasibility of doublethink and large homonym inventories in regular speech inspired mostly by the typology of toddler's speech and the linguistics of Genie, with several aspects of early children's speech in general, packed in a more naturalistic and "grownup" shell. For example: there's some simplification of concepts; no colours except light and dark, no genders, no compound words, no rounding, no exceptions to the word order, a very simple morphology and grammar, etc., and overused vocabulary with multiple meanings, for example vidu [jit͡sɣ̩], can be an expression of goodwill, but often gets used in all sorts of contexts involving anything positive. With lots of /ʌ/-s, /ɯ/-s and /ɰ/-s but no /o/-s, /u/-s and /w/-s since there's no rounding in Hardmoks (except allophonically after labial consonants), and a boatload of allophones, Hardmoks will use your day up pronouncing this weird phonology.

And yes, it is almost certain that hypothetical native Hardmoks speakers will mix up their R-s and L-s. Those are allophones in Hardmoks. And no, there's no Softmoks; Hardmoks has nothing to do with either the adjective "hard" nor the surname Mok, but instead comes from the english word "Sandbox"

Also, this is the only conlang I am reasonably fluent in lol Duo pls don't kill me for missing my Klingon lessions
