Species Human/humanoid
About Nongu Nongu (siopmi kyĕlü [ɕiopʼmi cʲəly]) is a language most probably originated from Siberia and more specifically from Tunguska’s Taiga. Many specialists tried to classify Nongu language into the hypothetical altaic family as it shares basically similarities with turkic, mongolic, tungus, korean and japonic languages. It shows some specific connections with manchu language though nongu language doesn’t belongs to tungus language group. So for now Nongu language is still considered as a linguistic isolate or a mixed language who own both turkic, mongolic, tungus, korean and japonic features. Another theory based on their autonym "siopmi" would makes the Nongu language and the Nongu people descending from the Xianbei.
