About Ajōne Ajoone is a language spoken by the Malanjhin. It evolved from Fosmotus Ma at some point while the Malanjhin were migrating from Ada Lia, but before the encountered the Trino. It was spoken well into the Rivalist period when the Malanjhin settled on the Okanydh Peninsula.

The main features of Ajoone are its case system and austronesian alignment-like voice system. The 20 case system evolved from only six cases in the protolang. The way this happened was through postpositions being used on cased nouns to create finer distinctions. Eventually, this was common enough that the postpositions suffixed themselves onto the nouns.

Onto the voice system. For each noun case class (groups of noun cases evolved from a single case in Fosmotus Ma), there is an according "antiactive voice" These voices promote an oblique argument to the subject and let the nominative be left out or demoted to an oblique. "I bought it for her" would become "She was bought it (by me)" These voices are used in many places in the language.
