Caïalanga is a universal language spoken by babies around the world. Each baby creating its own lexicon, this one is a mix of about 20 babies' lexicons. Caïalanga is a subject-verb-object type of language. It is very simple and most objects are subject-attributes (with the verb "be")

Classification and DialectsEdit

All babies speak their own dialect of Caïalanga, and this one is based on more than 20 babies' words.

GrammarEdit

IMPORTANT: The Caïan letter "À" can be replaced by an "A" (the "à" is a specific pronounciation of French babies) 


NounsEdit

VerbsEdit

I chose to add an infinitive => -oi. Past and present are the same thing and the future does not mean anything for babies.


SyntaxEdit

Babies have an inclination to use the letters "a" and (more rarely) "à". All regular nouns are ended in 'a' or 'à'.
