About Kumo The language of arachnoids from my conworld. Its vocabulary is made of Indonesian, Hindi, Nepali, Russian, Scottish Gaelic, Norwegian, English and Portuguese. The grammar is mostly similar to Russian, but with vowel and consonant gradation and some Norwegian features.

It has five dialects in the homeland of the arachnoids, Edderkoppia, that is located mostly in Ynsitia and partially in Amthi. However, the most of arachnoids live outside of there in Amthi and speak the outer dialect, known for its aspiration, nasalization and dental fricatives. Its phonology has some features of all the languages its vocabulary is made from.

The writing system:
