Species Human/humanoid
About Senthra Senthra is an agglutinative language that originated on the planet Mexus, serving as a lingua franca for the species living there. It's surprisingly similar to human languages and is somewhat easy to learn. It features heavy aspiration and its wordbase was inspired by the Semitic root system and the Hungarian "word bush" theory, while its orthography is similarly designed to the Korean Hangul alphabet.

[view] yer-da-khen'ney them-khis (Humans' Dialect)As Senthra is an interplanetary lingua franca of sorts, humans also started learning it.
