About Fomatan Fomatan is a minority language spoken in the Fomatan Oblast of  Yakormonyo. It is known for its consonant clusters, and its six vowels sound similar, it is usually hard to distinguish them. It is also unique from its sibling languages  Monyo and  Pehan in the following ways:
1) It uses the Zakadian alphabet instead of the normal abugidas. Because of this, there are strange clusters in Vomen.
2) It uses Paucal instead of Dual.
3) It is a tripartite language, wherein sentences with no object leave out the subject particle.
4) It is noun-initial instead of noun-final.
5) Its verbs have certain passive forms instead of using a particle.
