Kyofqshensai (Kyo-fuh-shen-sie) is the langauge spoken by the Kyofq people of Kyofqpqvel. It is a mixed polysynthetic-agglutinating language with SVO word order. It prefers short, simple syllables to more complex ones, though not to a great extent. [Kyofqshensai may be abbreviated as Kyo in this article]
Consonants are the same as in English. So sue me. Note: "Tt" is pronounced as in "That", while "Th" is pronounced like "Thought".
All of Kyos vowels exist in English as well, though are represented somewhat differently.
Q = duh A = dad E = leg U = loop I = seek O = no Ai = I Y = day
Tone, stress, and aspiration are non-semantic.
Kyofqvqpel is an isolated mountain nation located in a fictional version of the Andes. It is mainly composed of a large plateau in between two mountain ranges. The region was originally under-populated due to its isolated and semi-arid nature, until the 1940s, when a groups anarchists from many different countries fled here after the start of WWII. They chose this location to start a great experiment to form an anarchist society. To facilitate communication, they required a common language. They felt that it would be unfair to choose a language that one portion of the group was already native in. They also felt that having a new language would make it more difficult for hostile foreign governments to infiltrate the society, and so they created Kyofqshensai.
Word Classes and Order Edit
Kyo body words may be divided between nouns and verbs. For instance "Sefi" is a noun which means "women", while "Fwa" is a verb which means "to eat". However, the actual type and meaning of a word is determined by its position in the sentence. In Kyo, there are a wide verity of marker words, which have numerous functions, but their defining function is that they indicate the what type the word they are attached to is. All body words may therefore be used as verbs, nouns and adjectives.
Word Order Kyo is SVO for statements, SOV for demands, questions, and requests. It makes heavy use of OVS, which is Kyos equivalent of passive voice, and therefore also uses OSV for passive voice questions, demands and statements.
A sentence may be dived up between different segments, noun segments, verb segments, and setting segments. Verb and noun segments start with a stem, are then followed by suffixes, then by stem with adjective suffixes. The stems may be proceeded by special describing words. Setting segments consist of one or several stems followed by time or place postpositions.
Nouns Noun Segment: Stem + noun modifying words + adjective stem + adjective modifying words
