General InformationEdit

Ahoreni (Honzeu: 魂语,Oheooreozeu: 오허오러니 IPA: /oxɤorɤni/) is an agglutinative language spoken around the Changbai mountains. It is considered stable, with a population of about ~2,275,000 speakers. The language is vastly innovative, with much assimilation from middle Chinese and Korean.


The Ahoro PeopleEdit

The Ahoro people have historically occupied much territory, from Primorsky Krai to Shandong. 

Since the formation of North Korea, it is likely that the population in North Korea has assimilated with North Korean culture and philosophy. Thus, the population may no longer speak Ahoreni.
