About Xiqwa Xiqwa is a language of the artificial world Ulya. It was created by the iya Jgikwïxevek for use in Jgikwïxevek's secret land of Dja. Jgikwïxevek intended Dja to be hidden within Ulya, secret and unknown to the outside world. As such, Xiqwa was designed to be unlike the other major languages of Ulya, such as  Ulyan,  Mraupsian,  Periphery, and  Lulian. Eventually Dja's secret was broken and the land revealed, after which Xiqwa was mildly influenced by other Ulyan languages.
