Orkoto is an artlang that evolved from an older artlang of mine. The Orkoto language (Orkan for "evil" <ork> plus "speak" <ot>) was a laguage I invented not to be easy to pronounce, nor to read, nor to hear good. (If it is so, it was not intentional.) I just wanted to make an agglutinat conlang (for ease of vocabulary) and wanted it to be VCVC rather than the common CVCV. I wanted its grammar and phonology regular.
Its called "evil language" against Toki Pona. Orkot is contrary to Toki Pona.
I may use it as a fictional language in a future project, maybe in a video game.
Orkan phonology is somehow structured and regular. The sounds are based on -in alphabetic order- English, Finnish and some of my favorites words. The phonology wasn't intented to sound good but evolved in something that is pleassure to me.
