SociologyEdit

Okemunatel is spoken by the Okeman people in a world much like Earth. They tend not to linger on poetic notions, yet even a single word can convey the utmost detail. Th Okeman are a political nation with a focus on equality. Because of this, masculine and feminine traits are looked down upon and seen as a sign of weakness; succumbing to either extreme is viewed as a lack of control, the most revered trait of all. Neutrality and androgyne traits are praised as it shows complete balance between the two 'life forces' and allows for no bias.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Nouns are signified by the use of two consonants with one vowel after each.

Adjectives Edit

Adjectives are signified by the use of three consonants with one vowel before each.

Verbs Edit

Verbs are conjugated according to tense (Past, Past hypothetical, Past negative, Active, Active hypothetical, Active negative, Future, Future hypothetical, and Future Negative), and person (First person singular, Third person masculine singular, Third person neuter singular, Third person feminine singular, Second person singular, First person plural, Third person masculine plural, Third person neuter plural, Third person feminine plural, and Second person plural). Each hyphen represents a consonant inserted in between the vowels to signify the meaning of the verb.  

Verbs are signified by the use of four vowels with one consonant in between each. 

The first consonant signifies where the action is taking place, the second to signify the action/movement of the verb, and the last to signify the time

Each consonant has a different meaning, making up different verbs when placed in different spaces. Because the first space for a consonant signifies the environment/location of the verb, the second space signifies a description of the action taking place, and the last space is an adjective describing the verb, 21,000+ verbs can be made.

Using the charts above, the verb 'he might run' would be ATER"OVA. The first A signifying the future, the T signifying the location of the verb (legs), the E signifying the hypothetical aspect of the verb, the R" signifying movement in the verb, the O showing that the subject is singular, the V signifying the fast movement, and the final A showing the perspective of 3rd person singular (masculine).
