About Insular Hakkanic The people who initially settled Naxapsonowaye in the south of Hakkan territory had planned a marine expedition to discover the second largest land mass next to Etoe, their continent, but a ship had crashed landed just off the coast of the nearer islets. This is their language.

Inspiration
Insular Hakkan is based of modern East Asian languages, primarily Cantonese, and Thai to some extent. It is a tonal language, based off the differentiation between long and short, and high and low vowels. It is meant to be purely diversion in all actually, despite it being written in the Roman alphabet. Insular Hakkan is strictly analytical, there are no special case declensions and no special inflection when it comes to Insular Hakkan. Additionally, it not a pro-drop language and it employs a stress-timed language structure. Morphosyntactically, it works the same way Mandarin Chinese does in addition to derive words through compounding them, despite the fact that compound words are still written as separate words in their Roman transliteration.
