About Qlarochai Spoken on the northernmost tip of the Tengokai. In English, pronounce it with a silent 'q' (I've always wanted a reason to write those words!!)

Basic stuff about the langauge:
-no fricatives
-stops at 4 places of articulation
-4 types of plosives
-plus nasals
-plus implosives
-clicks!
-clicks are at 5 places of articulation
-4 types of clicks
-6 vowels (basic 5 plus schwa, which can never be in the initial syllable), no length
-Austronesian alignment
-largely free word order

So the Qlarochai people live on the far north of Tengokai. They're one of the most notably anti-Katiin groups, and very few of the cultures on Tengokai have any positive feelings towards the Katiinian cultures. Although fully capable of operating independently, the choose to interact with the rest of Tengokai, and have a large amount of resources from breeding and trading off Qcenokai (see the flag info page), as their Qcenokai are known to be some of the best.
