General informationEdit

This language is being built for the original intention of a private language between me and my friends. Although this may be so, I still post this language publicly so as to be given adequate critique. If you have any ideas, notice any irregularity, or have any questions feel free to message me.

PhonologyEdit

Until I can find a way to use the Akeda (traditional Menawe script) I will be using the Adegi (romanized Menawe) on this wiki. You can find and analyze my script on Fontstruct, the script aptly named Menawe.
