Amuzean is a language originally created by a group who frequented the dimensional nexus-like inn known as the Arbitrarium. It was something of an experiment initially, intended to create a "universal language" for artistic endeavors created by people visiting the Arbitrarium. Surprisingly, performing songs in Amuzean became very popular among the Arbitrarium's patrons, to the point that even some important ritual songs have had their lyrics translated into Amuzean for the sake of performance at the Arbitrarium.

The word "Amuzean" is derived from sort of a corruption of the word "amuse," referring to the language's artistic focus.

The syllable structure of Amuzean words tends to be strictly broken up as well. Each consonant-vowel pair is its own syllable. The word nikuna is pronounced ni-ku-na. When there is a consonant at the end of a consonant-vowel pair, it is pronounced as attached to the corresponding syllable. Hekutet is pronounced he-ku-tet. Diphthongs are generally pronounced as individual syllables, though they may be combined into one on occasion. Similarly, lone vowels are their own syllables as well The letter x is a bit special; it is always attached to the syllable of a consonant-vowel pair. Nexu is not pronounced ne-xu, but nex-u.

Grammar[edit | edit source]

Amuzean has a Subject-Object-Verb structure. The sentence "I kick the ball" would become "I the ball kick." The verbs always apply to the closest object.
