Naobè is a constructed language intended as an IAL or for use within the scientific community.
Naobè originated as a retaliation to the English language's considerable inconsistencies, redundancies, and fallacies. Over the past four years it has undergone several redesigns and is now nearing the end of its development. This an ongoing project as not all components of the language are completed yet, so check back for any updates.
There are 43 characters in Naobè. Most of which have some near-English equivalent.
The characters π and µ are not frequently used but exist for the ability for proper name pronunciation and the possible adoption of words.
Words in Naobè are intentionally kept short and semi-ambiguous. Rather than having a strict definition words have a more general meaning attached to them. The use of modifying words, word order, and specific grammatical structures creates more complex meanings.
Words in Naobè have specific endings that dictate their grammatical function. There are Prime and Extended Endings.
Prime Endings are the absolute final character of the word that dictates it's basic grammatical function.
