About Kokewa Kokewa is an agglutinative stop language that I am building, and by that I mean that I do everything with affixes and attaching words together, and I use a lot of stops. I attempted to add ejectives in, but i might have a bad definition of what exactly those are, so...
Sample of Kokewa[view] Mek, ti rygmek? Xymeketo gewyt.

To be, or not to be? That is the question.

[view] K'ok'ewahagera (Geran Kokewa)This dialect is also known as Peasant's Kokewa or Low Kokewa. It has slightly different pronunciation, the most notable being the removal of the ejectives by means of epenthesis and addition of the glottal stop. It is spoken by farmers and those that live in more rural areas.
