About Ngujap When Vietnamese and Toki Pona have a baby, this is what you get
Ngujap (or Buk Ñu Ghap; lit. "cold language") is an analytic artistic language I created to escape my comfort zone. I usually do agglutinative languages, and implement so many recurring features in my languages, and so this language is for me to be unique on many things.

Some standing features of Ngujap include:
  • Tripartite alignment
  • Creative derivation of words, e.g. banana literally translates to "yellow-moon fruit"
  • No verb roots, i.e. verbs are expressed using nouns and adjectives (buy literally translates to "money")
  • Nasal vowels!
