About Hakkan About Hakkan
The modern standard Hakkan language, or sometimes called the Hatxan language, was the first lingua Franca of the continent of Etoe /etowi/ on the terraformed planet Reita. It is a humanoid pro-drop language with a nominative-accusative alignment. It is a syllable-timed language with a minimal and rudimentary form of vowel harmony, and it contains several case declensions, up to 10 in Classical Hakkan, and it also includes several verbal conjugations. Adjectives don't normally agree with nouns in Modern Standard Hakkan, not even in the case of plural number, only in Classical Hakkan.

Hakkan, or originally Hatxan as it was spelled, is loosely inspired off of the modern languages of the Mediterranean Sea. These include languages such as Modern Greek primarily, European Spanish, and the modern varieties of Arabic to some extent, phonologically speaking. However, morphosyntactically, it functions in the way Classical Latin does and how the Modern Germanic languages form words through compounds. It isn't meant to resemble any living language but it bears resemblance to Navajo and other Native American languages when it is spoken.

[view] About Proto-Yli-HakkanPYH
[edit] [view] Naxapsonowaye (Emterezka)This dialect is a variant of the Classical Hakkan language, and it varies from the modern standard variant in vowel phonetics and it varies in that it possesses a simpler case declension that eliminates the use of multi-syllabic inter-vocalic word agglutination to simple morpheme clusters to form new words. It is mutually intelligible to those that live in Naxapsonowaye, along with members of the Sloya dialectal variants.
[edit] [view] Tsonoye (Tsonoy)This dialect is spoken in the easternmost regions of the former Hakkan empire, particularly in Tithkeim and in Slojavni, which are called Tsethxene and Tsonoyawene respectively in Modern Standard Hakkan.
[edit] [view] Wantsaxaksos (Wantsaxaksos)This dialect is also a predecessor of the Emterezka language, and features fewer influences of the Batus language.
