About Rwokoloofebian At the moment, Rwokoloofebian is not spoken anywhere nor by anyone, but when I (futurely) decide to create a story that involves this language, I will certainly use it and improve it if necessary :)

Grammar Features

  • The default word order is OVS and do not allow any flexibility, except in interrogative sentences, turning into OSV.
  • There is no orthographic distinction between noun, adjective, and adverb; adjective always comes before noun and adverb always come before the verb. This is how the 3 classes can be identified.
  • There are only a few grammatical cases, most characteristics are of an analytic language with few characteristics of an agglutinative language. And two numbers: singular and plural/collective.
  • The adpositions are, in the majority, ambipositions. This means that the position towards a word is really meaningful and switching order may cause confusion.
  • And last but not least, the verbs and tenses! Rwokoloofebian's verbs are not conjugated and it has just only one form (but 3 different suffixes). So, how are the tenses marked at all? The answer is... the Entity pronouns!
  • The Entity Pronouns does have the duty of mark 'who' is the temporal subject or circumstantial subject of the sentence (or both). Temporal subject refers to the regular subject pronouns (agent-in-action; nominative case). Circumstantial subject refers to the regular object pronouns (patient; accusative case). Both of them does have an Action version and a Possession version, being the last divided into two categories: property and relationship.
    If count ALL the variations of the Entity Pronouns, there are 144 pronouns forms!
  • Extra: Technically, rwokoloofebian sentences do not need spaces between words because is easy to know where a word begins and ends.


This is the basic content. Others Rwokoloofebian's features are encountered in the articles section. Maybe more soon :) (with articles)
