Species Human/humanoid
About Igbebė Igbebė is a tribal language spoken by the tribe of the same name from South Sudan. Each of the five vowels, as well as it's regular form (a), has a glottalised (ȧ) and a lengthened (â) form, represented by the diacritics. The glottalised i however has an umlaut (ï). Some consonants can also be lengthened by doubling up, so S /s/ becomes Ss /s:/, Sh /ʃ/ becomes Shsh /ʃ:/ and so on.

Igbebė is a fairly simple language, not very metaphorical and with very little use for modernistic, technological vocabulary.
