About Zaxon Zaxon is a language based off mainly from English, German, and a bit of Portuguese.

Note: Zaxon is currently going through some changes, such as:
  • Nouns now have gender (masculine or feminine), dimminutives, and augmentatives.
  • Verbs now have two infinitives and two past participles (short and long), which are used depending on the position of the verb in the sentence.
  • The verb "stardard" conjugation is now the long infinitive (which usually ends in -en, such as "kochen", to cook) rather than the short infinitive (which doesn't have a specific ending, such as "koch", to cook).
  • Addition of new sounds such as /ø/ (represented by oe), /ɚ/ (er, except when the e is pronounced like /ɛ/), /ɔɹ/ (or), and /uɹ/ (ur).
  • Bare /s/ between two vowels now exists, but only in the plural of words ending in ss.
  • Removal of ø, æ, and œ. The last two were reverted back to ae and oe, and the former, along with its sound /ʌ/, were replaced by other sounds such as /a/, /ɛ/, /ɔ/, or /ø/.
  • Vowels can now have length.
  • Removal of qv, which is now always represented by qu.
