Nuro'to is the official language spoken in the International Extraterrestrial Settlement, which was established by American, British, French, Spanish, German, and Japanese Scientists in the "Alternate Settlement Project". As such, it is a combonation of the 5 languages, and its name officially translates to "The Zeroth Language" , or "Language Zero".
The alphabet belonging to Nuro'to has 13 "base characters": a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, o, u, w, and y. However, to get the full range of Romanic consonants, accents are added to the characters. These accented characters are called Venji (Vayn-jee). Some Venji cannot be typed, so a font called Nuro'to is in development for the purpose of typing.

Dipthongs + Consonant ClustersEdit
The dipthongs in Nuro'to are as follows: When a dipthong wants to be combined with a vowel (which rarely occurs) an apostrophe is added. a'ua (a-wa)
In the ways of Consonant Clusters, any amount of PRONOUNCEABLE consonant combonantions are made; apostrophes are put in between each pronounced consonant.
In Nuro'to, Consonant Clusters are made by placing any amount of pronounceable consonants together. (example: Et'g'l'sa: "name" of god) As long as apostrophes are placed in between letters, the consonants are pronounced. If there is no apostrophe, only the first consonant is pronounced (ex: leranbu [lay-rahn-oo] "to learn"), excepting the case of rr, which causes a trilled r.
Nuro'to is a SOV language. It is written like English, excepting the sentence pattern.
The Motto Of The IES:
For the purpose of typing, I am typing in Roman Characters.
"Vinos keiva deit'h terayeu vomen'kiu, yn viat yori, an't's deit'h ceitels, vomu'fai" (terayeu and yori have y as a consonant, yn has y as a vowel.)
From the earth we came, and to the heavens, our reach shall extend
Lit: We from the earth came, and our reach, to the heavens, will extend.
