About Tobiseng TTobïseng is a simple SOV analytical language that has a small word count and uses many compounds, and since all words are monosyllabic, compounds can be told apart by the number of syllables. Some words can be different parts of speech based on context.

As you can probably tell, TTobïseng is based on Mandarin Chinese in many ways. There's the slightly similar grammar, the monosyllabic root words, and a whole bunch of words are borrowed or adapted from Mandarin.

The basic sentence structure is:
Subject-Time-D.O.-I.O.-Adverb-Verb
Anything relating to particles other than <qa> <o> <nïla> can go anywhere before the verb.
Adjectives come before the noun they modify, and relative clauses, marked by <pe>, come after the noun.
