Ishori is language spoken by the Ishori Islanders, a primitive tribal community located in an isolated archipelago of the Pacific Ocean. The Ishori language is most notable for having only two plosive consonants. The language often has difficulty directing taking words from other languages because of this. Only an estimated 4,000 people can write and read Ishori to a considerable degree, and only 60,000 people are known to speak the language fluently.

PhonotacticsEdit

Possible syllables in Ishori follow this structure: (C)(C)CV(C)(C). Each syllable must begin with a consonant in the language. The sonority hierarchy is often followed, but is not a restriction on the language. Other phonotactical rules also apply:

Plosive isolation rule: Plosives are never followed by another plosive.

Voiced syllable rule: To increase the "intensity" of the meaning of a word containing an unvoiced consonant, voice it and stress the syllable that contains it.

No repetition rule: A phoneme cannot be followed or preceded by an identical phoneme. If a prefix causes two identical phonemes to be placed adjacent to each other, the sounds will merge into one.

Ishori Islanders use a unique orthography to represent their language. The orthography contains many curves, curls, and rounded symbols. It utilizes an abugida as its writing system.

The romanisation of Ishori attempts to use standard characters only. The system is intended to be as intuitive as possible given this.
