About Ruyman Ruyma is the proto-language of  Rùma , the modern-day lingua franca on the continent of Lonos. It was spoken by the second wave of Lonos colonizers, who arrived a century after the Skaradyr people of northern  Valdare.

Ruyma is a nominative-accusative, head-final language, with the exceedingly uncommon (and perhaps unstable?) OVS sentence structure.
Sample of Ruyman[view] On gufun ghuacc onarum.
